Joel Makower interviewed on Woodstock (again!)

As the 40th anniversary of that little festival in upstate New York approaches, author Joel Makower has been busy with interviews. Last week he was interviewed by KTRS St. Louis and KIRO Seattle. Listen to the KIRO Seattle interview, in which Joel tells some colorful stories about Woodstock and the process of putting together his definitive oral history. There will be more interviews in the near future, and we'll keep you posted on them here.

Joel's also been blogging about Woodstock over on his blog. You can catch Joel, Arlo Guthrie, and Country Joe McDonald in vintage interview clips from 20 years ago when Joel was promoting the first edition of the book, along with audio clips from the audiobook. He's also written a great piece about the famed Woodstock Baby.
