Steve Gold

After accidentally discovering the stage panels from the 1969 concert, Steve Gold rescued the historic lumber, and inspired by Woodstock’s themes of peace and love, coordinated an event with Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.  We discussed how he found the stage panels, the historic importance, and continuing the message of peace and love.

Barney Hoskyns, author of “Small Town Talk”

Barney Hoskyns is the author of a fascinating new book, “Small Town Talk,” about the history of the music scene in Woodstock, New York.  He goes beyond the traditional views of Dylan & The Band (and of course the festival) and explores the characters & stories that made the town a continuing hotbed of music for decades.  We discussed Albert Grossman, Todd Rundgren vs. Andy Partridge, and much more in a brief but lively chat.

Woodstock Legend Wavy Gravy

Wavy Gravy called in to promote his upcoming one-man show.  We talked about his “rainbow bridge,” what happened to Bob Dylan’s original typewriter, and why I shouldn’t be ashamed for my generation because of Woodstock ’94 and ’99.
