I will be interviewing director Jim Brown on my radio program this coming Sunday, October 14th.   Jim is the director of the new documentary "Pete Seeger: The Power of Song". The film is currently touring the country and will open in NYC on October 26th. Click here - Pete Seeger - for information about screenings near you.

Jim Brown has a long history with Pete, starting when he met Pete as a teenager. Jim directed the film "Wasn't That A Time", a documentary on the historic Weaver's Reunion.   Jim has done a number of features concerning folk music - including a documentary on Peter, Paul & Mary.

Jim Brown will be heard on WFDU-FM's TRADITIONS between 3 and 6pm this Sunday October 14 over 89.FM in the NJ/NYC area - or listen in online at www.wfdu.fm

I almost forgot the most exciting news - WFDU will be presenting a concert - Pete Seeger & Friends on November 9th.    As you know, Pete does not perform too often these days, but he will be appearing at FDU'S Wilson Auditorium for a special "awareness" concert for the School of the Americas Watch. He will be joined by Kim & Reggie Harris, Bethany Yarrow & Rufus Cappadocia, and John Dull - among others.   For more information visit our website at www.wfdu.fm

We are trying to arrange an opportunity to interview Pete before the concert. I will post a note if we can make this happen.

November 9th promises to be an historic evening of music. Tickets are on sale now and I would expect that we will sellout tickets for this concert.

This sounds great, Ron! Maybe some of those Getaway goers could make it to the concert post-Getaway! I know I'd try to attend if I were going to be that neck of the woods! I heard Kim & Reggie Harris perform at Old Songs a couple of years ago. Spellbinding!

Thanks for the tip.
