Oral History Information
Harold Cohen's name can be heard spoken by Chip Monck during the Woodstock film. After the Sha Na Na performance on Sunday evening and just before Jimi Hendrix appears on stage, Chip says softly in the microphone, "Turn it up Harold." And so Harold turned the controls on the sound system way up to accommodate the legendary artist on what would become an epic performance. Harold worked for Terry Hanley and other sound companies over the years and was key in providing mixes for a number of iconic performers, even working the sound at the White House.
