  2. Dave Suarez says:

    Went to that Chuck Mangione show in 1973. Spent the night in the Saratoga jail. Got out the next day and sat in the pit and saw Pink Floyd do Dark Side of the Moon at SPAC that night.
    Side note; I was innocent of course.

  3. Greg says:

    Dave,

    Really? You were innocent? Or just not guilty?

  4. Betsy Ross says:

    Tommy Castro, not Castrop. That was a great show.

  5. Greg says:

    Betsy,

    Thanks for catchin’ the typo…
