Basement Rock interview with Pete Fornatale

by GlenBraget on August 26, 2013


Basement Rocks’s Glen Braget talks with well known New York City DJ Pete Fornatale in August 2009 about his fantastic book about the 1969 Woodstock Festival titled Back to the Garden: The Story of Woodstock.

Pete Fornatale was a disc jockey who helped usher in a musical alternative to Top 40 AM radio in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s, presenting progressive rock and long album tracks that AM stations wouldn’t touch and helping to give WNEW a major presence on the still-young FM dial. Fornatale passed away in New York City at age 66 on April 26, 2012.
