This episode remembers the largest and most famous rock and roll concert ever – the Woodstock Music & Art Festival – August 15 through August 18, 1969. We’ll sample one song each from the acts who performed there.
These include an artist who was six months pregnant when she sang her set. And the superstar who smashed his guitar on the back of a political activist who tried to disrupt his group’s gig. Then there’s the band whose turn to play came so late at night that hundreds of thousands in the audience slept through it. Hear about the acts that were invited to perform, but declined, canceled, or didn’t show up at all.
Throughout this episode, our resident Rockolgist, Ken Deutsch, has comments from Donna Surface, a primary production assistant for one of the founders and impresarios of the entire event. Ken also will have some groovy and far out factoids, and Radio Dave provide more of the greatest rock and roll stories on record.
