New Woody Guthrie Plaque at Petes Cafe
16 Mar 2013
The idea for the plaque came from Bob Santelli (Director of the Grammy Museum) and myself.
The plan to designate 4th and Main, in Los Angeles, as “Woody Guthrie Square” had already been discussed but we wanted something that would provide more information about Guthrie and why the Square was designated as such. We decided to talk to Tom Gilmore and Pete at Pete’s Café and Bar in the historic San Fernando building directly across from Woody Guthrie Square. Tom and Pete said “Good idea!” so we ran with it. Now the plaque is there for the world to see.
