    I saw the first SNL in New York in 1975. I was on a school trip from Georgia when a man walked up to four of us at Rockfellow Plaza, and asked us if we wanted free tickets to see a new show. We did. We went. This rest is history. I still have the ticket I wonder if the ticket is worth anything. 😉 Good memory for me! 🙂
