Los Angeles made Woody Guthrie famous.

Documenteer, Aric Allen, sent over this impressive mini-documentary on Woody Guthrie's 1937 travails in the city of lost angels, Los Angeles, California. And just how, "Woody Guthrie tumbled west down Route 66 to make it in California. Within two months he was a radio star. The year he spent on the radio in Los Angeles changed his life and put him on a path from tramp to troubadour."
