Jackson Browne “For a Dancer”
from Late For the Sky (Asylum 2014) —The first half hour of this show goes out in memory of the son of Leroy Francis Kasten Sr. and Mary Evelyn Schmitt: Leroy Francis Kasten, Jr., born in 1929 in Chicago and passed at the age of 88 on June 10, 2018 in Salt Lake City.
Steve Goodman “City of New Orleans” —Patron songwriter of all Chicago Cub fans, Steve Goodman, and this song in particular, was a favorite of Roy Kasten, Jr.
New Lost City Ramblers “Tom Dooley”
from Vol. 2 (1960) —Roy Kasten, Jr. loved the New Lost City Ramblers, one of the great old time string bands of the folk revival era. This song was a folk revival classic my dad knew on the banjo, though he played the shorter, less violent version as done by the Kingston Tri
The Byrds “Turn! Turn! Turn! (To Everything There Is A Season)”
from The Byrds [BOX SET] [Disc 1] (1965) —This perfect song, written by Pete Seeger and the authors of the King James bible, was sung hundreds of times by my father and his folk-loving friends in the '60s. It is socially conscious spirituality at its purest.
Pete Seeger “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?”
from The World of Pete Seeger (1970) —Written by Pete Seeger in 1955 and published in Sing Out! One of the great modern folk songs, a song written before the Vietnam War, but which became one of the most important anti-war songs of any era. Roy Kasten, Jr. would have sung this song many times
