Hair takes Broadway.
My favorite mini-milestone —
If you've been avoiding the news, chances are you've missed the continuing — or at least continuous— coverage of the myriad of 1968 anniversaries. Obviously, there are some milestones that are heavier than others. But it's been hard for the media to avoid marking each and every anniversary, no matter how small. LA Times columnist Meghan Daum has a bone to pick with that boomer nostalgia, in her own characteristically acid way. She calls out public radio specifically in her piece — which of course made her perfect for public radio to call on. We'll talk to her today, and to you — what are the '68 commemorative moments you could do without? (I for one, cannot do without mention of Hair's Broadway debut. But then, I'm a sucker for all things Aquarian.)
