Last February, an episode of Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"®, inspired by the late Pete Seeger, aired mostly online due to basketball. So since Vin is vacationing this week, he chose to resurrect that show for tonight, especially since a memorial concert for Pete and Toshi Seeger will take place at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park Bandshell on Sunday afternoon, July 20 with a lineup that includes Judy Collins, Peter Yarrow and Dar Williams and Dan Zanes.
"While my show isn't a Pete Seeger 'tribute' show by any stretch of the imagination," writes Vin, "Pete's spirit and influence hangs over, informs and inspires every moment of tonight's 'Idiot's Delight.' Pete was truly a giant cultural musical icon whose influence on several generations of Americans and people all over the world is immeasurable."
That's Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight"®, Saturdays from 8-10 p.m. on 90.7FM, also streaming online.
If you miss tonight's show, you can find "Idiot's Delight"® in the FUV archives for two weeks after broadcast.
