PP&M were the sound track to my childhood - I used to lie in bed at night listening to the one tape I had and letting the music carry me away. Leaving on a Jet Plane was my theme song for years.

Sad day.

This makes me so sad. The passing of an era. I can hear her singing Where Have All the Flowers Gone and it makes me want to cry.

I agree with Donna Lee...
Do you feel like we're saying good-bye to an awful lot of folks who were our heros/heroines lately?
(sigh)

Mary Travers certainly left this world a more beautiful place than when she found it. She's one of the "forever young". I love the photo of her you found.

I've loved the sound of PP&M since I was a girl. Mary Travers has left a beautiful musical legacy for us now and for generations to come.
