WFMT and music lovers around the world are grieving the loss of an American icon; folk singer, songwriter, social activist Pete Seeger. Pete Seeger has been a friend and inspiration to WFMT from the station’s earliest days. He co-wrote “If I Had a Hammer,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone,” and “Turn, Turn, Turn.” He himself was an active folklorist, popularizing the old spiritual “We Shall Overcome.”
