For those who were there, Woodstock was a weekend like no other

For three days in August 1969, it seemed like the Age of Peace and Love might just take hold.

Fifty years earlier, more than 400,000 young people grooved to the sounds of their generation at a music festival billed as “An Aquarian Exposition.”

Indeed, those hills really were alive with the sound of music as the three days of Woodstock unfolded here a half-century ago. Today that music, and the spirit of one of the most raucous weekends in American history, still echoes in the hearts of those who were there, those who wish they were there, and those who say they were there but might have come up more than a few miles short.

We  celebrate the 50th anniversary of  the concert as we walk to class this week.  Hope  you enjoy it.

Flashback 70's.....Suzi Qautro

Before I did what I did, we didn't have a place in rock 'n' roll. Not really.  I was the first to be taken seriously as a female rock 'n' roll musician and singer. That hadn't been done before. I played the boys at their own game. For everybody that came afterward, it was a little bit easier, which is good. I'm proud of that. If I have a legacy, that's what it is. It's nothing I take lightly. It was gonna happen sooner or later. I have done my job more than 50 years.

Tribute to Doris Day

Doris gained a vocal education by listening to the radio, becoming a fan of the embryonic records of upcoming Ella Fitzgerald. Her mother encouraged her to take singing lessons. Alma took Doris to see vocal coach Grace Raine, who was so impressed with Doris' natural talent that she offered her three lessons for the price of one.  Doris credits Raine with impressing upon her the importance of delivering a lyric, and today Doris says that Raine had the greatest impact on her singing career.

Hope you enjoy walking to class to the great Doris Day
