Back to Yasgurs....Happy 40th WOODSTOCK!

Last month during our vacation up north, we spent the afternoon in the town of Bethel NY, the site of the 1969 WOODSTOCK Concert. At the top of the 'bowl' where the crowd sat is now the BETHEL WOODS Museum and Center for the Arts.

It's a wonderful, interactive museum, with lots of vintage items, music and films. Very nicely done. But, the real treat was going a 1/4 mile down the road to the site where the stage was and looking out where all those nearly 500,000 people were! The rain made it all the more authentic, Kool.

Enjoy the pictures, and be sure to tune into my radio special:
"Java" John's "3 Days of Peace, Love, Music, and Interviews - WOODSTOCK at 40"
