Bound for Glory

Sundays at 8pm

Hosted by:

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. Now, over 52 years and over 1,600 concerts later, WVBR’s Bound for Glory continues to provide free, live folk concerts on over thirty Sunday evenings per year. Stop by the Alternatives Library in Anabel Taylor Hall on the Cornell University campus, or tune in on WVBR, in Ithaca or on the Internet. The show runs from 8 to 11 pm (ET) and there are three live sets at 8:30, 9:30, and 10:30.
