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.
