BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN:  “My Oklahoma Home.”  From  We Shall Overcome—the Seeger Sessions

“My Oklahoma home it blown away
Well it looked so green and fair
When I built my shanty there
Now my Oklahoma home is blown away.”

During the 1930’s and ’40’s, the FSA (Farm Security Administration) sent a team of photographers  to the “dustbowl’ of Oklahoma, Carolinas,  Kentucky and elsewhere to document the poverty and deprivation of that place at that time.  Marion Post Alcott was the first woman to be hired for that high powered team of skilled artists and photojournalists.   During 1938-1942 she produced 9,000 images for the FSA.

This album of Pete Seeger’s music was recorded by Bruce  at his Colt’s Neck farm in 2007, and it is the only album, so far, that he has done not containing his music.  The album was a huge hit worldwide and it was beautifully done, with musicians skilled in that music genre.  Bruce fit right in.

Another FSA photographer was Dorothea Lange. Here is a Blogfinger link to our piece about her:

Says Jean Bredin:  “Becca Hamilton from Ocean Grove is an OG lifeguard.  I was curious how long has she been enjoying Weaser’s ices. .’Since I was 2 years old, she exclaimed! ‘   She’s a great representative for Weaser’s, our lifeguards, and girls in their summer clothes !”

“Many a light lad may kiss and fly
A kiss gone by is bygone
Never have I asked an August sky
Where has last July gone?”

Jean Bredin: “Every Wednesday night, the Ocean Grove Summer Band plays at the Beach Pavilion at 8 pm.

“Tonight  the band was celebrating 64 years of playing in Ocean Grove.

“Harry Eichhorn does not conduct anymore, but he was in the brass section playing his trumpet.

“Old fashioned fun, what a treat!”
