The first events managed by me were "SPFC" concerts & festivals which were taking place in Tampere, Finland from the spring of 1978 until the summer of 1979. After the first event I spent 3 weeks in London & Brighton during the summer of 1978. In the autumn of 1979 I left Finland to study in Yorktown, New York, with Rotarys Youth Exchange programme for one year until the summer of 1980.
