39 Years Ago This Band Rocked Albany “Mayfest”
39 Years Ago This Band Rocked Albany “Mayfest”
Mayfest at SUNY Albany, SUNYA, Albany State or whatever else they had students call the school in those days, was one of the best college events on the campus. In the days, before uptight administrators and faculty took "learning how to have fun responsibly" out of the college curriculum, events like Mayfest and Fountain Day put that college campus, sandwiched between Washington and Western Avenues, on the map.

It's hard not to be skeptical of the NCAA or some of the larger conferences, aka the Power 5 schools, when it comes to things like, well, paying student-athletes above and beyond their tuition, room and board and more recently, a "cost of attendance" stipend. Yes, they are institutes of higher learning but over the years even some of the most prestigious universities in the United States, such as Notre Dame, Stanford, Duke and even Harvard have been marred by athletic scandals. Then add in the football and basketball powerhouses that occupy your tv screen every week and the list of improprieties would make your head spin.

Nine Arrests Made at Albany Hazing Incident
How'd you spend your Friday night? Perhaps lying on a basement floor with your face submerged in water, while being spanked with a wooden paddle and begging for mercy? No? Perhaps if there was cold water being poured on your head from a garden hose? Still doesn't sound fun?
