Elliot Tiber is our special guest! Talking with Kate Hennessy, on Get Focused Radio, about Woodstock, Judy Garland, the Mob and more!
``Taking Woodstock`` is the true story of Elliot Tiber, the man who was instrumental in arranging the site for the original Woodstock Concert. Elliot, whose parents owned an upstate New York motel, was working in Greenwich Village in the summer of 1969. On July 15, when Elliot learned that the Woodstock Concert promoters were unable to stage the show in a town near his parents’ motel, he found them a new venue—a move that would change his life forever. Taking Woodstock was made into an acclaimed motion picture from academy award winner, director Ang Lee and starring comedian Demetri Martin (released in 2009 by Focus Features).
