Originally called the "Willowbrook Concert" in August 1972, its purpose was to stop the deplorable and unsanitary conditions at the Willowbrook facility for intellectually challenged children. What has come to be known as the "One to One" concert was organized by Geraldo Rivera, who enlisted the aid of John Lennon and Yoko Ono. There were two shows. I was at the evening show with my then fiancee(now wife) Donna, and our friend, Gilberte Najamy. Lennon was dynamic. Read my remembrances of the concert in the "One to One Concert" section of this website. Also, see the essay in the "Lennon" section.
