Woody Guthrie centennial and All Things Considered


Several weeks ago I was asked if I'd like to be interviewed for Woody Guthrie's centennial on All Things Considered on National Public Radio. I am a huge ATC fan, so of course I jumped at the chance. I took BART over to San Francisco and was shepherded into an audio booth at KQED, our local public television and radio station. I watch and listen to a huge range of programs on KQED, so I shouldn't have been surprised, but the studio is big and busy. Lots of people going in and out.

Bradley Klein interviewed me for a half an hour. He was in NYC and I was in SF, and with a techie and a lot of equipment it sounded like he was right next to me. It was fascinating to see what Brad was interested in pursuing. I'm eager to hear the segment and see how he wove together his POV and all the other interviewees.

Happy centennial Woody. We need your music as much now as we did when you were rambling from California to the New York Island.
