I have a request that doesn't really fit into any of the catagories, but I think this one is the closest.

I travel for my job and recently came across a late seventies silver eagle coach(Tour bus) for sale. the sign in the window calims that it used to belong to Arlo Guthrie. I have not been able to speak to the seller yet, So I do not know if he can verify his claim. The thing is thirty years old and in need of a complete reconstruction. However, if this is a coach with some history, it just may be worth it. So here coes the request:

Does anybody have any tour pictures from the late seventies or early eighties showing the BUS?

You may be thinking about Big Red - The Hanuman Bus. It was for sale until I bought it back. One thing you got right, it needs a lot of work.

So I guess this is just a worn out old coach and not a Guthrie classic :(

If recently is within the last year or so then probably wasn,t the Hanuman bus.I know he had it back for the benefits/show,s for The City Of New Orleans Tour after the flood and seem to recall he may have had it before that, after the Rising Son Records office was destroyed in Florida.
Check out Arlo,s myspace site to see pics of Hanuman,s predecessor,s.

In a book about Apple Computer's iPhoto 6 program ("Visual Quickstart Guide iPhoto 6" written by Adam C. Engst) he has a section titled, "Understanding Aspect Ratio's" and on page 186 he writes,
" An aspect ratio is the ratio between the width of the image and its height, generally expressed with both numbers, as in the line from Arlo Guthrie's song "Alice's Restaurant Massacree" about "Twenty-seven eight-by-ten, color glossy photographs with circles and arrows and a paragraph on the back of each one."
Great example! :lol:

The local newspaper "The Springfield Republican" has a front page story today about state symbols of Massachusetts. A photo of Arlo is shown with the notation that Arlo's song "Massachusetts" is the official State Folk Song. :lol:

Thanks Jim, I went out and bought the paper last night. Its nice seeing Arlo on the front page and for a good reason.

I still miss the the closing of your show with that song - I wish you'd
come back on-air.

Linda, thanks for the nice comments on our show and choice of Arlo's Massachusetts as our closing tune each show. Our daughter and her friends filed the bill in 1980 to make Arlo's song the state folk song.
Our favorite show each of the 14 years we did the radio show "Just Friends and Folk" was the one nearest July 10th, Arlo's birthday, when we would play two hours of Arlo.
:lol:

I remember Jim, and Thanksgiving was another special show. On
Thursday nights, no one was allowed to talk to me from 8 pm till after the last note of "Massachusetts" at 10 pm.

Good memories......

Linda
