It's a long way from here to th' U.S.A.

Woody Guthrie *auditioned* there. That hilarious collision with the entertainment industry, detailed in Chapter XVIII of _Bound for Glory_, is unfortunately not available on the Web.

Yup. They were going to dress him up in a costume, and tell him how to walk onto the stage. He excused himself to go the men's room, and took the elevator instead.

Out of print, like many good things.

a cheap paperback of BOUND FOR GLORY is available -
http://www.amazon.com/Bound-Glory-Plume-Woody-Guthrie/dp/0452264456/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1350515034&sr=1-1&keywords=bound+for+glory+guthrie

and many used copies of the above and previous pb editions.
the original hardbound edition can get a bit pricey.

Thomas.

Actually, it was ALL the Almanac Singers who were at that audition. BOUND FOR GLORY was more of an autobiographical novel.

Ah, so. I should have been more cautious.
