The Woodstock Show

August 19, 1969 ~ Mere hours after the epic festival, Crosby, Stills and Nash appear on the Dick Cavett Show, giving a first-hand account of the Woodstock festival that took place over the weekend. Joni Mitchell, who skipped the festival to make sure she could keep her appearance on the show, performs a song she wrote about it called “Woodstock” and also “Chelsea Morning.” The Jefferson Airplane appear, too, and Grace more than a few times calls Dick Cavette “Jim.” Finally, Cavette responds, “You’ve got to learn my name, Miss, Joplin!”

After saying a few words about fellow activist John Sinclair, Pete Townshend hits him with his guitar.
