In 1969, Peace, love, dope, and rock and roll. The first of a three-day Woodstock Music and Art Fair opened on an alfalfa field near Max Yasgurʹs Farm in Bethel, New York. The three day concert drew a crowd of more than 400,000 people. When almost a half-million people showed up without tickets organizers gave up and opened the event to all comers. It was obvious even at the time that the concert was a major cultural event. The 24 bands included Janis Joplin, Santana, Credence Clearwater Revival, The Who, Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Canned Heat, Jimi Hendrix, Sly and the Family Stone, Joan Baez, Jefferson Airplane, The Grateful Dead, and Joe Cocker. Max Yasgur owned the land where the concert series took place. It was more widely known as the Woodstock Festival and it became the symbol of the counter-culture movement. Things that helped make Woodstock a unique event included rampant drug use, not enough food, and sanitation, three deaths, two births and four miscarriages.

In 1992, HBO airs “The Garden Weasel,” the first episode of “The Larry Sanders Show.” The original pilot, “Good Night,” has never been shown in its original form. In that unseen pilot, Larry threatens to move to Montana while he and Jeannie are house shopping; Hank first displays his habit of falling asleep on the couch while the show is airing; Phil tries to get Larry to do some anti-Israeli jokes; Larry asks Hank to stop saying “Hey now!”; and Janet Jackson arrives via helicopter for the last few minutes of the show.
