 Singer Pete Seeger performs at the 2009 Dorothy and Lillian Gish Prize special outdoor tribute at Hunts Point Riverside Park on Sept. 3, 2009 in New York City.

In this episode: In the two days since songwriter, activist and folk music legend Pete Seeger died, Soundcheck has been asking listeners and readers for your Pete Seeger stories. We got a ton of amazing responses from people sharing memories of Seeger -- be it the time you met him, sang along with him in concert, or were simply influenced by his work. We share some of those stories from listeners and a few musicians reflecting on Seeger's life and legacy.

Then, the legendary trumpeter, songwriter, multiple Grammy-winner, record label founder, artist and philanthropist Herb Alpert sits down with us for a chat at the P.J. Clarke’s across the street from Lincoln Center -- and from Dante Park, where three of his totem sculptures were recently installed.

And, Toronto-based country and folk singer Doug Paisley plays songs from his latest album, Strong Feelings, in the Soundcheck studio.
