I was 15, living in NJ, and was determined to be there. My Mom was equally determined that I would NOT. She won. I eventually forgave her😎

Santana, Jimi Hendrix, CSN&Y, The Who, all icons of that time. A magic experience. I still have the triple LP set which was released here in South Africa.

I went to Woodstock, 1 month before starting a 50+ year career in Broadcasting. It was a fitting send off and a time that I remember (kind'a) well. Remember what they say..."If you can remember Woodstock, you weren't there!".
