We had tickets, but WNEW-FM’s Scott Muni was saying that there were already 20,000 people there. This was on Wednesday. The Woodstock Music and Arts Fair up in Bethel was to begin on Friday afternoon. So early Friday morning we drove out of the City in our little VW bug. Picked up a couple hippie chicks from San Francisco hitchhiking just before the West Side Highway. Traffic became tighter and tighter as we neared the exit off Route 17.
