Soothing the Beast: Saturday Night BFP-Jamiol Music, Episode 105

Pete Seeger - Waist Deep in the Big Muddy

Tonight on the Soothing the Beast BFP/Jamiol Music Pick we remember Pete Seeger. A folk singer, social activist and a caring human being, Seeger left a legacy of song and social commentary that he melded together with his banjo picking and guitar playing. Seeger sang for migrant workers, college students and presidents and touched them all. It was tough to pick out one out of so many of his great songs. I settled on his anti-war song Waist Deep in the Big Muddy. He was always a fearless truth teller and this week's pick embodies that...So tonight it's Pete Seeger performing Waist Deep in the Big Muddy...enjoy...DJPJ.

  1. After a week of reading posts dedicated to what happens in a toilet I can’t think of a better tongue and cheek choice than the late Pete Seger’s song the…”Big Muddy.”
    Excellent pick and again clever, Paul!
