This Land Radio: Episode 9 – This Machine Comes Home

by This Land



This week, Woody Guthrie visits our studio and gets us on his wavelength.

Nora Guthrie asks us to dance. Dance out of our made walls, out from our sins, out from our sick spell, dance the high glory. Tiffany Colannino opens up the archives to reveal the only recording of Woody performing live, and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott slips off his sneakers and goes searching for the soul of a man.
