Home in This World: Woody Guthrie’s Dustbowl Ballads W/ Randall Poster

Kiss the Ground w/ Ryland Engelhart

Randall Poster is an American music supervisor and a longtime collaborator with film director Wes Anderson. For anyone not familiar with what a music supervisor does, he’s the person who selects the songs to play during a movie, television show, or commercial. Some of Randall’s credits include “Skyfall,” The Wolf of Wallstreet, and “The Grand Budapest Hotel.”Randall recently collaborated with Kiss the Ground on a new project called “Home in This World: Woody Guthrie’s Dust Bowl Ballads.” It’s a track-by-track recreation of Guthrie’s 1940 “Dust Bowl Ballads” album, a collection of songs about the economical hardships of the Great Depression. Randall recruited a diverse group of artists to revamp the tracks on the record while maintaining the same message: Take care of the earth before it’s too late.

This Episode Kills Fascists: Woody Guthrie's Life & Legacy w/ Deana McCloud

The Road to Now

Most Americans know Woody Guthrie’s “This Land is Your Land”, but the song, much like the man who wrote it, is far more complex than many of us realize. Guthrie, who was born in Oklahoma in 1912, moved west during the Dust Bowl of the mid-1930s and witnessed the tragedy of the Great Depression first-hand. A self-proclaimed “common-ist,” Woody dedicated his life to documenting the experiences of his generation and using his platform to advocate for the common worker. In this episode, Bob & Ben speak with Woody Guthrie Center Executive Director Deana McCloud to learn more about Woody Guthrie, his music, and his legacy. This episode was recorded at the Woody Guthrie Center in Tulsa, OK. If you’re ever in the area, we highly recommend you take the time to visit. A video of Bob's visit is available on our episode page and on The Road to Now's YouTube channel. You can visit the Guthrie Center's website at woodyguthriecenter.org and follow on them at twitter at @WoodyGuthrieCtr. You can follow Deana McCloud on twitter at @DKMcCloud. This episode is a rebroadcast of The Road to Now #94, which originally aired on May 1, 2018.

Woody Guthrie - This Land Is Your Land

Songs of Our Own: A Marital Tour of the Music That Shaped Us.

Greetings All!  This months bonus episode is on Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land" a song I'm sure most of our listeners here in the United States can remember singing in elementary school.  We compare Woody's 1940 version, the Avett Brothers 2020 version and Tom Morello as the Nightwatchman's live version.  We discuss the often omitted fourth and sixth verses and their overall impact to the song, if this land is in fact "made for you and me", how a songs meaning can change once it is censored, and how the heck this very political song became an elementary school sing along staple.  As always thank you for listening!Intro/Outro Music:Upbeat Forever by Kevin MacLeodLink: https://incompetech.filmmusic.io/song/5011-upbeat-foreverLicense: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/4.0/
