    SPECIAL THANKS in Film Credits + Pre-order DVD + Radio Unnameable COMPLIATION CD + RARE ABBIE HOFFMAN MASK from the “Bring Abbie Home” rally at Madison Square Garden. After an arrest in the 1970's, Yippie icon and Radio Unnameable regular Abbie Hoffman went into hiding. Everyone, including the FBI, waited for him to show up at Madison Square Garden, so masks were made to hand out to the crowd. The idea being you can't arrest Abbie because "Everyone is Abbie!". In the end, Abbie was able to attend the event and did not get arrested. The masks undoubtable helped and now you too can be Abbie Hoffman and own a piece of countercultural history.
