“Culture of Protest” host Professor Dick Flacks says of his next broadcast: “July 12 is Woody Guthrie’s birthday–and we observe it this week (as we’ve done for the last 26 years). We’ll feature Woody’s songs of the depression of the ’30s (the body of which is one of the great chronicles of that era) and a few contemporary versions that bring home the parallels between those hard times and ours.. and the continuing relevance of America’s greatest folk artist.”

This broadcast of “Culture of Protest” will air Thurs., 7/9, from 6-7pm on KCSB.
