This edition of the Big Show starts with a big set -- which is just a small portion of the Canon of Pete.
And the canon of the late Pete Seeger is a big part of the lexicon of American popular music . . . and American folk music . . . and American protest music.
Or, to be succinct, American music.
I knew that first long set would be good. What I wasn't prepared for was how good it is in the actual listening. I mean, you know, but then you hear what you've pieced together and . . . you know.
NOW, there's lots of other good stuff on 3 Chords & the Truth this go around, but I think I'll just let you listen to find out what that might be.
I prefer not to think of the Big Show as just a music program on the Internets. I prefer to think of it as what it really is -- and what radio ought to be, once was and rarely is anymore -- and that is an adventure.
I think Peter Seeger would have approved of that.
It's 3 Chords & the Truth, y'all. Be there. Aloha.
