Woody Guthrie & the Columbia River Songs: Hear in the Gorge, episode #317/11/2017 Duração: 32min
When folksinger Woody Guthrie strolled into the Bonneville Power Administration in 1941, he played a song or two on his guitar, filled out some paperwork, and was hired by the federal government to write songs about dams on the Columbia River. And then, just as abruptly as it began, this odd-couple story came to an end. The folk singer’s 30 days at BPA is considered one of the single most productive bursts in his fruitful songwriting career. We track down the man who rediscovered this complicated history and get to the heart of what caused the federal government to hire a “scruffy radical folksinger” and why he chose to come to the Pacific Northwest. Music and archival audio: Woody Guthrie - Library of Congress Recording Sessions, March 1940 with Alan Lomax. Woody Guthrie, Columbia River Collection - released 1988 by Smithsonian Folkways.

JAPANESE HISTORY IN THE HOOD RIVER VALLEY In 2015, Min Yasui was the first Oregonian to ever receive the Presidential Medal of Freedom - our nation's highest civilian honor. Min was first generation Japanese American, born right here in Hood River. His father, Masuo, had immigrated from Japan and become a respected leader in the small community. But this is far from a simple success story. It includes FBI spying, unexpected death, the largest mass incarceration in U.S. history, and a small town in Oregon struggling with newfound notoriety. This is an immigrant story turned national narrative, one still relevant more than a century later. music: Blue Dot Sessions, Kai Engel, and Poddington Bear. archival audio from: Minoru Yasui, Oct. 23, 1983, Steven Okazaki Collection, DDR_densho_1012_3_13, Densho
