Hugh Romney, named Wavy Gravy by B.B. King, was one of the stage announcers at the three major Woodstock music festivals (1969, 1994 and 1999), as well as other related events over the years. The counterculture figure also made a name for himself supporting the Seva Foundation, as well as hosting his own Camp Winnarainbow in California. But his story is rich with many other chapters and experiences, from meeting Albert Einstein as a child, to having Lenny Bruce as his manager at one point. Ahead of his return to MC at the sold out Seva benefit Saturday on Maui honoring Ram Dass, he spoke to HPR All Things Considered Host Dave Lawrence about his, no pun intended, colorful life.
