The new “Woody Guthrie Center” in Tulsa, Oklahoma opened this spring. It’s roots, as WNYC’s Sara Fishko tells us, were in a family archive run by Woody’s daughter, Nora, who welcomed us in for a journey through Guthrie history. Here is the next Fishko Files.

 

 

Coming up this Saturday, June 29th at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts: The Del McCoury Band's new project "Del and Woody," showcasing never-before-heard words from Woody Guthrie, set to music by the Del McCoury Band. 

Select Woody Guthrie recordings used in this edition of Fishko Files...

Just want to tell you that your work, and your intelligent and perceptive comments, make a terrific show and make my days - when I remember to listen - richer and able to honor the human spirit. You do a magnificent job! Thank you, Sara....
