KCBX Special: Central Coast locals remember Woodstock

Fifty years ago, in August of 1969, half a million young people gathered on a farm in New York for the Woodstock Music & Art Festival. To mark the anniversary, KCBX shares the stories of San Luis Obispo County residents who were there. 

In this one-hour special, producer Carol Tangeman interviews Will Jones of San Luis Obispo, Peggy Atwill of Los Osos, Ken Lidoff of Los Osos, BJ Semmes of Atascadero, Bill Seavey of Cambria, Alice McNeely of San Luis Obispo, Bill Wiener of Arroyo Grande, and Gail Brooks of Los Osos. Tangeman also includes music and stage announcements from theCD "WOODSTOCK—40 YEARS ON: BACK TO YASGUR’S FARM."

Listen along as Central Coast locals remember their time at Woodstock: how they got there, their experiences during the festival and how the seminal gathering impacted their lives in the ensuing decades.

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.
