A tireless campaigner for his own vision of a utopia marked by peace and togetherness, Pete Seeger's tools were his songs, his voice, his enthusiasm and his musical instruments.

He died Monday at age 94. His grandson, Kitama Cahill Jackson, said he died of natural causes.
On July 4th, 2020 at 11pm, you'll hear a special re-broadcast of a special I produced in 2019 featuring a conversation between Ron Esposito and Doug Yeager during his visit to Cincinnati in November, 2018.
Ron Esposito welcomed Doug Yeager into WVXU’s studio to talk about Josh White’s career. Yeager represents the estate of Josh White and is also Josh White, Jr.’s manager. This one-hour special originally aired on February 9, 2019, two days before Josh White’s birthday on February 11th (1914).
