RiGGY how to meet musicians or fun at the airport (49) RE: how to meet musicians or fun at the airport 30 Jul 99

Back in Feb 1967, NY radio host, Bob Fass, suggested to his huge WBAI listening audience that they ALL meet at the International Arrivals Building at Kennedy Airport at midnite. Friends were already planning to attend a Jim Kweskin & the Jugband concert that nite at Town Hall, so after it we took the convoluted multi-train ride out to the airport. What a great scene !! Literally THOUSANDS of freaks freaking out the airline staff [ it was nearly empty of "real" travelers ]. At two in the morning a red-eye arrived from some far away place, and as the bleary-eyed disembarked they were met by throngs of singing, happy, STONED, kissy folk, throwing flower petals in their path. Some great shared music that night !! We were from NJ [ I'm sort of embarrassed 'bout that, still....] and were too late for the last bus/train, so we stuck out our thumbs at 3am & caught a ride in a fellow WBAI-er's convertible that had the top DOWN. This was mid-winter NY ! We froze our little tushies off in the back seat [ heated frontseat, only] & they dropped us off at the George WashingtonBridge, so we could catch some shut eye in the bus terminal until the 1st NJ Bus left @7am. Anybody else from that huge crowd of Fass Followers out there ?? RiGGY
