Our most recent radio production celebrates the Centennial of Woody Guthrie, the great American folksinger who wrote ‘This Land is Your Land’ among many other songs. It’s a look at his appeal starting in the 1930′s, his influence in the folk revival of the 1960′s, and the surprising new life his writings have acquired thorough the efforts of the Woody Guthrie Foundation, and the collaboration of a new generation of musicians.
