L.A. celebrates Woody Guthrie
(CNS) – The intersection of Fourth and Main Streets in downtown Los Angeles will be dedicated this morning as “Woody Guthrie Square,” in connection with the city’s eight-day celebration of the centennial of the birth of the late folk singer.
Councilwoman Jan Perry will be there, along with Guthrie’s relatives and representatives of the Grammy Museum.
Guthrie lived in Los Angeles from 1937 until 1940. He broadcast on radio station KFVD, which is now KTNQ. He was fired over his unrelenting support for the Soviet Union.
