Seeger Fest!

by Jeremy Rainer
Durst Breneiser

Pete Seeger has been a focal point of my life for the last 13 years.  I first met him after a concert (on my birthday!) in 2001, and did an hour-long interview for my high school newspaper.  In 2002, I organized a concert with him at my high school.  And when I was in college, I generally saw him every chance I got.  I saw him so frequently that he recognized me whenever we met (and I always made sure to meet him after a show).  I met him for the last time this past October, when I had the privilege of mixing sound for Toshi Seeger’s memorial service.

Puss n Boots is the collaboration of three very talented singer songwriters: Sasha Dobson, Norah Jones and Catherine Popper.  After performing live together for years, they finally decided to record an album.  Ahead of the release of their debut album, No Fools, No Fun (which is out now) the band performed a live concert for an audience of WFUV Marquee members at Rockwood Music Hall, here in New York City.  

Question of the Day: Who?

Here in Gotham City we're stumped as to who placed mysterious white flags atop the Brooklyn Bridge. Was it The Joker or The Penguin? Or given the acrobatic skills required to pull off such a feat and the puzzling symbolism of the flags, have the The Riddler and Cat Woman joined forces? We must know who. So today we're asking for songs that ask the question, "Who?" Leave them in the comments below and we'll spin a set after 9am.

Here's what we played:

Men at Work "Who Can It Be Now?"

David Byrne & St. Vincent "Who"
