      EVENT DETAILS
      Pete Fornatale's Rock on the Radio

      In 1964, with his weekly show "Campus Caravan" on Fordham University’s WFUV, Pete Fornatale became the first person to host a rock and roll radio show in New York City. Fornatale was a pioneering creator of free-form, progressive radio in New York for nearly 5 decades - interviewing and writing about legends, including Richie Havens, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Simon & Garfunkel, and more. The Library celebrates the acquisition of the Pete Fornatale archive with a special evening hosted by Don McGee, current host of Fornatale’s groundbreaking show, "Mixed Bag," featuring interviews and classic segments from Fornatale broadcasts on WFUV, WNEW-FM, and K-Rock now in the collection. (If you need assistance with online reservations, please visit the welcome desk at the Library for the Performing Arts' Lincoln Center Plaza entrance, where volunteers will make a reservation for you, even if you do not use email. For free events, The Library generally overbooks to ensure a full house. All registered seats are released 15 minutes before start time, so we recommend that you arrive early.) ASL interpretation and real-time (CART) captioning available upon request. Please submit your request at least two weeks in advance by emailing accessibility@nypl.org
