Thinking Aloud
Ballad Man Alan Lomax
You may know the names Woody Guthrie and Burl Ives, but what about Alan Lomax? His story comprises media, politics, war, democracy, and equality, with music as the glue that holds it all together. Toddy Harvey works for the U. S. Library of Congress. He discusses how a folksong collector helped shape the attitudes of a nation.—Original airdate: 12/5/2008
