    The counterculture brought all their flutes and vegetables to the park on March 26th, 1967, and the Love-In commenced! It Happened One Year plunges you into the midst of this glorious, groovy event as Sarah & Joe talk flower & incense based protest circa the Summer of Love, and then spiral it out to the Be-Ins of the time, the simultaneous Central Park event of Easter '67, more aggressive protests to come, and whether or not The Monkees joined in with the fun and frivolity. Attention is paid along the way to Les Blank's God Respects Us When We Work..., the psychedelic bands making appearances at Elysian Park that day, General Lewis Hershey vs. General Hershey Bar, and speculation as to how the hosts may have personally involved themselves in protests on their college campuses were they alive at the time.
