Peter, Paul and Mary - Leaving On A Jet Plane (25th Anniversary Concert)

I was listening to Sirius/XM Radio's 60s on 6 a couple days and enjoyed an interview with Peter Yarrow of the iconic folk group Peter Paul and Mary. Yarrow was interviewed by "Cousin" Brucie, and spoke about his work with Project Respect.  Yarrow played a few of the groups well known songs like "Blowin In The Wind", "Where Have All The Flowers Gone" and "If I Had A Hammer" and tried to get Cousin Brucie to sing with him.  However, the most touching part of the interview was at the end when Yarrow dedicated and sang "Leaving On A Jet Plane" to the late Mary Travers, his former bandmate.
