This is just a thank you to Ron Olesko for the Radio Tribute which was broadcast a few weeks ago.

It's belated, because I was just off on holiday and didn't have time to listen to it then, but recorded it and listened last night. Enjoyed it so much! Thanks Ron.

(Tried to find the previous thread, without success, hence the new thread).

Thanks Rog! I'm so glad you enjoyed it!   I really had a great time putting the special together. It was a such a pleasure to work with the talented cast in recreating Bound For Glory. I can see why the original production was such a pivitol moment of the folk revival.

Speaking of Woody, there is a new CD coming out in a few weeks that features a live performance given by Woody Guthrie in the late 1940's. It is the only recording of an extended live performance known to exist and from what I've been told it sounds really good. I wrote about it on my website - www.ronolesko.blogspot.com

Thanks again for listening and for your kind comments. I really appreciate it.

Just ran across this song about Woody Guthrie:

WOODY
© Audrey Auld Mezera 2004 (Shock Publishing Australia. Admin by Bug Music USA)

Woody, I never knew you
But you're in my guitar when I play
Out there on the road
Out where you made your home
Your spirit travels everyday

This machine heals wounds
This machine ends wars
This machine is the voice
That demands to be heard
Songs of rage, songs of work
Songs that help sing out the hurt
Woody, you're singing in the wires

Woody, I never knew you
Though yo sang to me as a child
Wake up, wake up, wake up
Things are looking up
Grab your guitar and ride

This machine heals wounds
This machine ends wars
This machine is the voice
That demands to be heard
Songs of rage, songs of work
Songs that help sing out the hurt
Woody, you're singing in the wires

You built the roads I travel
And paved them with your songs
Every face a story
Every train a home

This machine heals wounds
This machine ends wars
This machine is the voice
That demands to be heard
Songs of rage, songs of work
Songs that help sing out the hurt
Woody, you're singing in the wires
