Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Arlo Guthrie

Remember the song “Alice’s Restaurant?” In this podcast you’ll hear how the song came about. It was really a war protest tune. Guthrie was a folk singer-songwriter, known for writing protest songs. He had another hit “City of New Orleans” in 1972. After I woke Arlo up, we surprised him with a visit from Alice Brock, the woman who owned the restaurant. She was not too pleased with the movie “Alice’s Restaurant,” starring Arlo Guthrie. She’ll reluctantly explain why.
