May 11, 2017 Record of the Day

Pete Seeger, one time member of the Weavers who hit #1 in 1950 with “Goodnight Irene” was a leader of the anti-establishment movement longer than any other recording artist.  He wrote many songs on disarmament such as “Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “If I Had a Hammer.” As much as anyone else he is noted for making “We Shall Overcome” the anthem for his cause. His 1956 album “Darling Corey,” released on Folkways Records, is now worth up to $100.00.
