Thanks to Oberlin Conservatory faculty members James David Christie and Jonathan Moyer for their cooperation, and excellent work with their students, and to audio supervisor Paul Eachus for assistance!
Fifty years ago, Michael Barone graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory and, not wanting to go on immediately to grad school, found a job with a small radio station in central Minnesota. He never did make his way back to academia and has been with that ‘little station’… now the impressive Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media enterprise… for fifty years, for the past thirty-five years as host-producer of Pipedreams. As he realized while recording these students in May 2016, the organ scene at Oberlin has changed quite a bit since he was a student!
