Just for Fun

Pete Seeger & Bruce Springsteen at the Inauguration concert.  I’ve been listening to both of them for, well, as long as I’ve been listening to anything.  Seeger was a good, old friend of WRL when I worked there, and, of course, a Civil Rights activist.  I remember, too, when Springsteen fans raised hell in the NJ State Legislature trying to get “Born to Run” named as the state song.

So it seems especially, impossibly that the music of my childhood, and adolescence, and turbulent activist years is now being sung for my children, too, and that it means the same, but also something entirely new.
