Segment 1: I (Chuck) opened with the “I feel like I’m fixin’ to die rag” which was famously sung at Woodstock by Country Joe and the Fish. I then welcomed a new guest, writer Mike Bond. We discussed his latest novel Goodbye Paris, a frighteningly realistic book. My review on Amazon said, “Here’s another thriller from my favorite modern writer in this genre. Mike Bond writes in the tradition of Frederick Forsyth, Eric Ambler, or Alistair Maclean, skillfully using world events as the backdrop for incredible characters to play out their stories. This book is not for the squeamish; the violence is palpable, invasive, pervasive.” Mike and I had an excellent conversation about the book and I plan to have him back as a regular monthly guest on 4th Thursdays.

Segment 2: I played Philip Farruggio’s column about Woodstock, and then we talked for the entire segment.

Segment 3: I introduced Michael Annis who read his essay, 50 years after Woodstock.

Segment 4: I played my conversation earlier with Frank Cordaro, followed by a column from Julius Awafong, then closed with Arlo Guthrie’s “Comin’ in to Los Angeles”.
