THE SEARCH FOR WILLIE NILE

Printer-friendly version

Here's another unedited excerpt of WUSB people trying to get a legal ID from a musical star. In this case, it was Willie Nile, who was performing on the Stony Brook campus on Friday, October 3, 1980. We spent a good deal of time searching the Union building to track him down. (At one point you'll hear me mention that I hadn't even started to work on "Planet Three" yet, that being the audio collage program I was producing at the time on Friday nights.) In the end, we got the ID and another Stony Brook concert was history.
