The Friends of Bound for Glory
Supporting Bound for Glory in its 45th Season!

Phil Shapiro
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.

Guest artists perform three half-hour sets in front of a live audience and for the pleasure of the "audio radiance" of Central New York. The guests aren't paid for their performances; no admission is charged. Clearly, it's one of the better bargains around for fans of live folk music. Years of frugal loving care applied to aging audio equipment have helped the show stay on the air on its minimal budget.

In order to help keep the systems needed for Bound for Glory functioning, the "Friends of Bound for Glory, Inc." has been organized. In addition, the group has done a lot to take some of the fundraising work off of Phil, and to promote folk music in the Central New York area.

To contribute or for more information, please write to Friends of Bound for Glory, PO Box 173, Ithaca, New York 14851, send e-mail to, or visit the Bound for Glory web site.
