Ramblin' Jack Elliott has played music with legends like Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan.

While in Tulsa, OK, for the opening of the Woody Guthrie Center, he slipped off his sneakers and took producers Sarah Geis and Abby Wendle wandering around his past both real and imagined - from a rodeo in Brooklyn to the far reaches of outer space.

Soul of a Man was produced for This Land Press/This Land Radio. Read about how non-natives Geis and Wendle have taken to telling local Oklahoma stories, and their memorable pursuit of this Ramblin' Jack Elliott interview, Behind the Scenes.
