What comes to mind when you think of Woodstock? No doubt it’s hazy memories of that famously radical decade, the sixties. But we boomers are nowhere near done with our revolutionary ways. In fact we gals are now transforming the spirit and style of aging and there’s no better place to kick off the celebration than Woodstock.
Ann Baker, the visionary boomer who created “Women at Woodstock” is joining us to share all about that remarkable retreat, her thoughts on aging and renewal, and why becoming a crone is a good thing. So, if you’re a lucky member of the feisty side of fifty, be sure to tune in for this one—this interview is just for YOU!
Before there was a Woodstock Concert, there was Elliot Tiber working to make a go of his parents’ upstate New York hotel, the El Monaco. It wasn’t easy. The Jewish clientele who had returned to the Catskills year after year had discovered Florida, and the upstate hotel business was dying.
To save his family’s livelihood, Elliot put on plays, musicals, and local festivals. In the process, Elliot became the area’s official issuer of event permits--not that anybody else wanted that position. Elliot even worked weekends as an interior design artist in New York City, all in the hopes of helping his family.
In the summer of 1969, Elliot Tiber’s life changed in a way he never could have foreseen. Greenwich Village had become the mecca for gays in America. There, Elliot had socialized with the likes of Truman Capote, Tennessee Williams, Andy Warhol, and a talented young photographer named Robert Maplethorpe, and yet had managed to keep his gay life a secret from his family. Then on Friday, June 27, Elliot walked into the Stonewall Inn--and witnessed the riot that would galvanize the gay movement in the United States. And on July 17, when Elliot read that the Woodstock Concert promoters had lost their license to stage the show in Wallkill, he called to offer his help in finding a new venue. In the days that followed, Elliot found himself swept up in a vortex that would change his life forever.
The events that unfolded during that hot New York summer have come to be recognized as major turning points in our cultural history. Few, however, have enjoyed Elliot Tiber’s unique view of those events. Taking Woodstock is the funny, touching, and true story of the man who enabled Woodstock to take place. It is also the personal story of one man who took stock of his life, his lifestyle, and his future. In short, Taking Woodstock is like no history of Woodstock you have ever read.
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).
THIS IS AN ARCHIVED SHOW, PLEASE DO NOT CALL IN!
Viewing Ang Lee’s “Taking Woodstock,” we recalled that Joni Mitchell, who’s not in the film, wrote the Woodstock song. Even though she dropped out from making that festival scene in upstate New York in 1969. Why? Her manager insisted she appear on the Dick Cavett Show. All the same, Joni immortalized the event with her lyrics, as did singers Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, who scored a hit on Billboard’s Hot 100 with the Woodstock single from their album, Deja Vu. “By the time we got to Woodstock,” go the lyrics, “we were half a million strong, and everywhere there was song and celebration …”
“She captured the feeling and importance of the Woodstock festival better than anyone who’d been there,” reflected David Crosby. Joni wrote the song in a Manhattan hotel room, while watching the events unfold on her television. Not being there, she claimed, gave her an intense perspective on what was happening during the landmark folk-rock concert of “peace and victory.”

VividLife Radio's Ed and Deb Shapiro welcome Chandra/Jo Sgammato Yogi, Manager of Integral Yoga Insitute and initiator of Yoga at Work and School Programs for a conversation on going from Rebel to Woodstock Yogi.
Chandra/Jo Sgammato grew up rebellious, angry, and anti-social until she found yoga. She is the Manager of the New York Integral Yoga Institute (IYI), and has initiated Yoga at Work and Yoga at School programs that bring yoga to New York City businessmen and teenagers: students with all the problems she had at that age take a credit-bearing semester in hatha yoga and self-development that helps them navigate the rough road of teenagers. Chandra shares her journey and how her life changed through the teachings Sri Swami Satchidananda, the founder of IYI also known as the Woodstock Guru, and an esteemed spiritual leader who dedicated his life to both individual and universal peace. His teachings influence Dr. Dean Ornish’s work in reversing heart disease and Dr. Michael Lerner’s work with cancer patients. To honor the life of one of the great Yogis of our time Chandra, Premanjali, Claudia Kreiss, Ed and Deb are creating “Global Garland 2014” a year of events celebrating the 100th birth anniversary of Sri Swami Satchidananda.
