Bands were booked, tickets sold in the multitudes, and then the powers-that-be shut it down. Hard. Regardless, concertgoers showed up and camped out on the skiing hill in the hot month of August, pushing the tiny community to the end of their wits. What was it all about? Who wanted it on, who wanted it off? Gorman Bechard, movie documentarian of such films as PIZZA: A LOVE STORY and COLOR ME OBSESSED is currently working on a full documentary of the Powder Ridge Rock Fest, which we discuss at length in this episode. Good music, good fun, all strange and weird with hippies and conservatives looking back at a turning point in music and concerts. Look for the ongoing crowd funding effort for the movie here:&nbsp;https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/powder-ridge-music-festival-documentary-phase-2?fbclid=IwAR1OYdS5ti9aeFWAFUVKKOmSduwPfYbGyerYgH27d2VhyJnMLE29JWtMHYs#/</p> https://wesu.streamrewind.com/https://wesu.streamrewind.com/bookmarks/listen/375865 Sun, 26 Feb 2023 18:30:00 GMT Pint O' Comics Episode 252 w/ The Geekpreacher, Derek White https://wesu.streamrewind.com/https://wesu.streamrewind.com/bookmarks/listen/368733 <p>&nbsp;The Satanic Panic and the Religious Battle for the Imagination is a documentary released earlier in 2022 focusing on the bizarre happenings in the early to mid- 1980's when Dungeons and Dragons, the tabletop role-playing game, found itself on the defense from factions of religion and the media.
