SANDWICHED IN: Woodstock: Three Days of Peace & Love. Join Professor Ronald Brown and step back in time for a look at this iconic weekend. Forty-five years ago today, 400,000 people (more or less) jammed the New York State Thruway headed for Max Yasgur’s farm in Woodstock, NY. After an average of 6 hours on the road, they were greeted by muddy fields and woefully inadequate facilities. They had to make some choices: should they stay, or should they go? Those who stayed got very dirty but enjoyed a long list of performances and, ultimately, made history. 12:10 p.m.
