It's Sunday, October 3rd, and that means it's the anniversary of the death of arguably the most influential folk singer/songwriter of all time...Woody Guthrie. On The Strombo Show tonight, we'll be playing an album side from his first album .

To help you get ready for it, feast your eyes on these three versions of Guthrie's 'Tom Joad.'

Man, this is like the Inception of song covers.
