    Happy anniversary to any and all who were at Woodstock 50 years ago. I had a chance to go with my cousin, but opted to stay and work at the restaurant that weekend. I've been sorry ever since.

    I just got done playing for about 70 people at a picnic and asked if anyone there had been to Woodstock. No one had, and the crowd was about the right age.

    I was 11 and remember it as if it were yesterday:
    Growing up on the Island of Long we had all 3 major networks along with 2 regional stations & a PBS channel.
    The dinner ritual throughout the neighborhood was to watch the local news at 6 PM, and then watch (some things don't change) the National news.
    That Friday, I recall, before dinner hit the tray, we were looking at the NYS Thruway(every channel covered it) via aerial footage and it was closed...CLOSED!! was what the man said...all because...well there was something about music and hippies or something.
    Those were interesting times.

  4. I was ten years old in '69. Being in south western Ontario (Canada) at the time, we picked up all the Great Lake US and Canadian TV stations. It was news then that alerted me to the "big festival". Family moved to the west coast that autumn 50 years ago, and I've never been back since. A pretty good chance I never will either.
    I did watch a PBS special last week covering Woodstock.
    Cheers, Barrie.
