Of all of the Woodstock shows I have heard, too many to count----------nothing tops this show....................put together with more love and heart, not to mention taste than any other.
If there is a gold standard for Woodstock shows, and if there is a god, then this production is indeed the gold standard.
Congratulations to the host/producer--------------nice to hear something done so artfully.

I missed Woodstock. Hey, I was only 11 and still under parental control. FM Odyssey's "40th Anniversary of Woodstock" program brought that incredible event to life for me. More than just facts and figures, this show passionately reflects not only the atmosphere of the Woodstock festival, but also the emotion of the hippie era. It's the next best thing to having been there. Fred Migliore has done a remarkable job, as usual.

Dear Mr. Migliore,
I commented on your Woodstock, 40th Anniversary Show and wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for taking me "Back to the Garden." I only wish my parents were still alive to enjoy your wonderful love of music and insight in to this historic event.
Thank you so much!

I am the love-child of a couple of "hippies" (one of eight, at the time.) We were stuck in South Dakota and I was only three years old when the greatest musical event in the world happened.
I've always had a deep love, accompanied by curiosity for how that weekend actually happened.
FM Odyssey's 40th Anniversary, Woodstock show made me feel as if I never missed a thing!
I don't know if there is a review committee on this site, but in my opinion, this program should get top billing!

This is fantastic! Great hisorical info and the music - wow! Listening to the wonderful music of that period brings back great memories of the political upheaval and changes that occured during that time period. The changes so well documented in the music. Fred Migliore's is a master of tying it all in together and putting together a masterful program of both music and information. Delightful listening!!

Fred Migliore's knowledge and passion for the musicians and music of this era comes through load and clear. Without a doubt the finest radio program I've ever listened to. Thanks Fred, your love for this historic event brought tears to my eyes.

I've listened to Fred's weekly show since he first came on the air, so I'm one of the locals who follows his show regularly. His FM Odyssey Woodstock program brought the event right to me. At 17, I never attended but grew of age in the hippie era. This show gives a great mix of details and music. I agree with all of the above comments and couldn't have said it better. FM Odyssey had me up and dancing with happy tears. This show absolutely rocks.

I always get so much more out of any creative endeavor when I get a peak into the behind the scenes workings that really give the story to how something came together and FM Odyssey's 40th Anniversary of Woodstock is the mother lode of curiosity cures!
I love it! I was not even born when Woodstock happened but loved watching the recording of it as a teen and now, it seems to really becoming all back around. (have you been in Target? they have peace signs on everything!)
And now, to hear this- it's just the best surprise to come across.
How precious to have this recording and perspective at this time.
The interview is so engaging that I feel like I'm in the backseat listening in on a great conversation with the on demand music to boot!
Thank you for making this available!

Fred has done it again - creating a show with heart! This time brilliantly weaving together the times, the politics and the music of Woodstock. I wasn't there 40 years ago, but this show brings it all home; celebrating the party that grew into a concert, that ultimately became the Woodstock Festival. Thanks for the trip, man!

This is a great montage. There's so much to be learned here. Music, commentary, history. There's lots of reasons to enjoy this show.

Fred Migliore shows what passion means to a broadcast. His knowledge of this era and his love for music and artists comes through loud and clear.
Bravo!! One of the best radio programs I've ever heard.

I loved the details Fred and Pete wove in between the songs. The "big stars" (Santana, Joan Baez, CSN&Y etc) were covered, but also the groups that have slipped out of the headlines over the years - Thunderclap Newman, Bert Sommer, Mountain. Highlights for me were the interview with Richie Havens and the audio montage of announcements over Joni's song. I got chills at the end of "I Feel Like I'm Fixin to Die Rag". Duke Devlin was a blast too - wrapping up with his interview was icing on the cake.
Great Show - I'm listening for a 2nd time now to try and absorb it.
