Fifty years ago this month, half a million young people gathered on a farm in New York for the Woodstock Music Festival. KCBX shares the stories of San Luis Obispo County residents who were there. 

In this segment, we hear from BJ Semmes of Atascadero, Bill Seavey of Cambria and Alice McNeely of San Luis Obispo—all three were living on the East Coast in the summer of 1969. 

Carol started as a newsroom volunteer at KCBX in the summer of 2017, inspired by her daughter's internship with KCBX News. She joined the KCBX staff in January, 2018. Carol started her radio career at Cal Poly’s KCPR, then moved on to become the director of programming and a morning host at KKUS (US98). Her voice was heard on advertisements and on KSBY TV for many years as well.
