Woody Guthrie

The Wonderful World of Woody

by John Platt

As you no doubt know, Saturday, July 14 is the 100th anniversary of Woody Guthrie's birth, and WFUV will celebrate Woody’s life and legacy with special programming all weekend. On Friday the Question of the Day with Don McGee (in for Claudia) at 9:30 a.m. and Under the Covers (with Eric Holland in for Darren) at 12 noon will be devoted to Woody's music, while Dennis Elsas will feature Bruce Springsteen's takes on Woody, some new songs based on Woody's New York City lyrics, and tribute performances by The New Multitudes (Jay Farrar, Yim Yames, Anders Parker and Will Johnson).
