    I saw one of those on facebook last night.
    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    The Atlantic did a piece on a TV show Seeger did in the mid-60's called Rainbow Quest, which I'd never heard until I started looking at Youtube clips after his death. It's such a lowkey show, so different from the glitz and speed of today.

    The last part of the article named what I was seeing when I watched some of the episodes:

    The show may have been a fleeting and ambivalent experiment in Seeger's long life. But it represents the very best of both the man and the medium. Through his signature combination of charisma and humility, he managed to turn television into something collaborative. When Pete Seeger was in front of the camera, the "magic screen" became truly magical.


    I really wondered what it would look like for someone to pull something like this off now. I guess it would be nearly impossible. None of it looks rehearsed, much seems to have been off the cuff. But it was fascinating for me, at least. In some ways it reminded me of some of the live TV that still took place even in the early 70's (for long-time Cincinnatians, I'm thinking of Bob Shreve's shows - obviously the tenor was different, but the visual quality was fairly similar).
