The Women Who Worked Woodstock 1969

(1/1)

Tim McCulloch:
From Dan Mortensen and the other elves at the Pacific North West chapter of the Audio Engineering Society, an oral history from several women who worked the festival in a variety of capacities, along with comments and additional info from some of the men who did, too.

Over 4 hours, I've not watched it yet, it's fresh out of edit.

Debbie Dunkley:
Thanks for this Tim!!

Dan Mortensen:
Yes, thanks, Tim!

That was really a cool experience. True to expectation, we had a good group of panelists to start with and it kept increasing up to the day before the event, when we had a run-through and two unexpected but very welcome people joined us (one was a backstage security person and the other was Chip Monck).

All their stories were really fascinating and you'll hear them when watching the video. As several people pointed out in the meeting, they were almost all in their early 20's when they were part of that incredible thing, and for almost all of them it was a life-changing experience.

It was a very moving experience to hear and be with them.

The PNW chapter (and Tea Time Topics) have had some really good guests and topics lately and I'm kicking myself that I have gigs on most of the days the events are live.  Many thanks to you and the rest of the team for their work in getting the recordings out.
