8/6/2019
More
50 years ago, throngs of music lovers descended upon the small town of Bethel in New York’s Catskill Mountains. An estimated 500,000 people drove, hitchhiked and walked to get to the Woodstock Music Festival. It was billed as a three-day festival, but spilled into a fourth day -- from August 15th to the 18th. Dairy Farmer Max Yasgur agreed to host the event on his land after the town of Wallkill, New York backed out of holding the festival. But, unlike most music festivals today, with tight...

Thousands of people flock to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx every baseball season to take in a game. Many, of course, will purchase something while there -- a hot dog, a beer, a hat perhaps. On this week's show we’re looking at Yankee Stadium, not from the fan perspective, but from the view of a vendor, and a long-time one at that. Stewart J. Zully began vending at Yankee Stadium when he was just 15 years old, and he continued working there into his 50s. Zully describes his experiences as a...
