Space or Rock 'n Roll? (post 4)

It was the end of May, 1969 and I needed to sort out my summer. I had an assignment letter for Apollo 11 from the Michigan Daily but no NASA credentials. I also had a summer job lined up at a clothing store on Michigan Ave. which allowed me only to take one week off. I had to decide whether to go to the Cape in July for Apollo 11 without a press pass, or whether to go elsewhere. There was a lot happening that summer. I had heard about plans for a huge three-day rock festival in New York in August sponsored by the Woodstock Music and Art Fair. What would it be? Space or rock ‘n roll?
