This weekend marks the 50th anniversary of the legendary music festival Woodstock in the summer of 1969 when four hundred thousand people converged on a local farm in upstate New York to hear 32 of the top musical acts of the time. Westwood One News will have full coverage all weekend, featuring correspondent Steve Kastenbaum reporting from Bethel Woods, NY and 50-year old sound from the Westwood One News archives.

In addition to this weekend's coverage, Westwood One will also celebrate Woodstock's golden anniversary with a half-hour special, "Woodstock: A Festival for the Ages." The news retrospective, hosted by correspondent Mike Moss, will run Labor Day weekend and will explore Woodstock's legacy with archived audio clips, news reports and interviews.
