Time To Sing, A
Program Description

Tony Saletan solo in studio (without a live audience) performs, and riffs between, songs : "Turn, Turn"; "This Little Light Of Mine"; "Carry It On"; " The Magic Penny"; "I'm On My Way To Zion"; "We Shall Overcome"; (unidentified song - a favorite of Ghandi, notes Saletan); "This Land Is Your Land"; "Passing Through"; "A Little Brand New Baby"; "John Henry"; "I Can See A New Day."

Program has somber tone which Saletan (in 2/2006) clarified through context. The program was done quickly in response to events of the day, namely the assassination of Robert Kennedy. Saletan: “On that day, I believed that the event was central on the minds of everyone watching, and that I didn't need to say anything specific to make the relevance of the content clear.” Color, 1968.
