This evening's program is our third annual tribute to Woodrow Wilson "Woody" Guthrie (July 14, 1912 – October 3, 1967), his legacy and family.
At the center of the show is "Woody at 100: The Woody Guthrie Centennial Collection", Smithsonian-Folkways Records SFW40200, set to be released July 10, 2012. My fingers are crossed, on May 2, Smithsonian-Folkways promised to send an advance copy to WCUW, but did not commit to a ship date.
"In honor of the Woody Guthrie Centennial, Smithsonian Folkways presents an in-depth commemorative collection of songs, photos and essays on one of America’s most treasured 20th-century icons.
