Most of the Columbia University Class of '68 walked out of graduation on a prearranged signal -- students carried radios under their gowns and walked out when WKCR played "The Times They Are A'Changin'" -- to a countercommencement on Low Plaza, rockin' out with the Grateful Dead, who were smuggled past the barricades in a bread truck to the steps of the student plaza and from there to Morningside Park for a big picnic.

What the band actually played was not recorded, so the song we've filled in the time frame with works as well as any, and fits like a glove at slightly over 2 minutes, a rare live performance of Golden Road To Unlimited Devotion.
