Upcoming events:

Wednesday, May 27th, 3pm - 6pm: Moondog: 99th Birthday Tribute
Moondog was blind, dressed in ancient Viking regalia, slept on 6th Avenue in New York during the 1950s, and was a musical genius. Biographer Robert Scotto revisits Irwin's program to pay tribute to the majestic Moondog for two hours on May 27 in honor of the late musician's 99th birthday. The show will feature recordings from the 1950s to the 1990s, reflecting the strange sounds and exotic beauty of one of the most underappreciated American composers of the 20th century. Moondog recorded with animals, self-made instruments, and tugboat horns; composed percussion pieces, chamber music, and works for 25 saxophones. Scotto is the author of The Viking of Sixth Avenue, the first full-length biography of Moondog. This is his fourth visit to Irwin's program.
