I was deeply saddened by the passing of Mitch Podolak on August 25. I first met Mitch in June 1974 and he told me he was starting a folk festival in Winnipeg. I didn't go to the first Winnipeg Folk Festival that summer but I was there many times through the 1970s and ‘80s. I shared friendship, many a meal, much music, and the occasional fierce argument with Mitch in many places over the years. His influence – like that of Estelle Klein – is felt every time I plan a radio show. Perhaps the most excited I ever saw Mitch at the Winnipeg Folk Festival was when Pete Seeger sang “L’Internationale.”
