Pete Seeger: How Can I Keep From Singing? reveals an inside history of American folk music's most famous and controversial performer in three, one-hour programs, produced and hosted by David K. Dunaway, and originally distributed by PRI. Program I: Origins - How did a Harvard-educated boy become a radical, hitchhiking, banjo-playing, political activist? Program I explores Seeger's youth and America's folk revival of the 1930s and '40s. Program II: Folk Songs and Ballads - This program evokes the exciting folk music revival of the 1950s and '60s and the role Seeger played in it. Program III: Topical and Protest Songs - This program looks at the tradition of singing out for social change, and how the music of the Civil Rights, anti-war, and environmental movements galvanized Seeger's life. About the Producer - David K. Dunaway has been a prize-winning radio producer for decades, specializing in historical and literary documentaries. He\'s the author of a half-dozen volumes of history and biography, including How Can I Keep From Singing? The Ballad of Pete Seeger (Villard/Random House, 2008), a consultant at the National Parks Service, and he teaches at the University of New Mexico.
