Description

Moore speaks about the resurgence of WXBC; musicianship alongside the likes of Todd Rundgren and Bob Dylan; his passion for writing and recording; his upbringing in Woodstock; the landscape as Bard's greatest asset; his role with NBC's The Today Show; making your own fun; '79 as President Botstein's first graduating class; the days of captive radio audiences; music for the Bardian masses in 1979; a 24 hour radio cycle; musical growth through independence and elbow grease.
