List of first Farm Aid performers and more

Yesterday, we ran a story about residents' memories from the first Farm Aid, which was 25 years ago at Memorial Stadium.

Today, I got a phone call from a reader who wanted to see a list of the performers. That's below, if you're interested.


Also below is a photo of Farm Aid toilet paper that reader Dwight Jones brought in. He was a volunteer and still has several rolls. He didn't bring it in time for us to get it in the paper, so I'm posting it here.
