Podcast: Woody Guthrie, pt. 1
Episode #16-20 | airing 5-18-16

Except perhaps for Bob Dylan no one individual has influenced more folk music performers than Woody Guthrie. And it can be argued that there would be no Bob Dylan had it not been for Woody. The next two weeks we’ll listen to Woody’s music from a variety of sources. Including interpretations of many of Woody’s songs, songs written in his honor and songs newly composed from the hundreds of lyrics he left behind.
