Phil talks about the many soloists and bands that have been on the program over the years, now broadcasting from Anabel Taylor Hall on the Cornell University campus, and about one hilarious disaster. “On a Sunday night in September 1967, Phil Shapiro made his first Ithaca broadcast on WVBR’s Bound for Glory, presenting folk music of all sorts and kinds to the Central New York listening audience. Now, forty-nine years and more than 1,500 concerts later, WVBR’s Bound for Glory continues to provide free, live folk concerts on over thirty Sunday evenings per year.
