    5 out of 5 stars 3

In the 1960s and '70s, Frank Yandolino rode the hippie counterculture movement alongside visionaries like Artie Kornfeld and Michael Lang, and he helped put together the Woodstock Festival of 1969, the era's emblem of love and peace. From then on (and even before that), Yandolino, a beguiling fast-talker, charmer, and gifted storyteller, took charge of his life according to those ideals, grabbing and embracing all opportunities that were thrown his way.

Would you listen to Frank & Charli again? Why?

Yes, I loved all the many stories he told of his life, it seems authentic and an unusual look into the sixties and seventies.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Frank & Charli?

There were so many that I can't recall a favorite, but one of them was his encounters with Salvador Dali and his wife.

Have you listened to any of Allan Edwards and Marianne Fraulo ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No, this is the first one I have listened to.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Adventures of a New York Iconoclast.

Any additional comments?

As I was listening, I wanted so many friends to hear it as well. I especially wish I could send it to my ex-husband Angelo, who grew up in New York in the 60's. I think he would really enjoy it.

I really liked how she revealed her inner workings, her insecurities and her triumph with self mastery.
