Small Town Talk: Dylan, The Band, Morrison, Joplin, Hendrix & Friends in the Wild Years of Woodstock

0

Author Barney Hoskyns has written the definitive book of stories of Woodstock, NY (the town, not the festival). This little village attracted the Rolling Stones, George Harrison, Bob Dylan, and hundreds of others. Every one of them brought a story including epic egos, massive insecurities, strained relationships, and, of course, extraordinary talent. The this town in the mid 1960s and early 1970s spanned the era from the folksy Peter, Paul, and Mary to the drugs and debauchery of Janis Joplin. Listen to Barney talk about his new book.

The Tim Danahey Show started in July, 2010 at internet station Castle Rock Radio. It started as a one-day-per week endeavor and quickly grew to five days per week. The show discusses economics, government, social issues, history, and non-fiction books in a magazine format featuring in-depth conversations with guests. Politics and inflammatory conversations are discouraged as they are divisive and counter-productive. Instead, the show seeks under-reported topics and delves into facts, different perspectives, and ramifications of each perspective.
