New Yorker Huey Morgan examines the life, work and enduring appeal of a musician known as Moondog who lived and worked on the city’s streets in the 1950s and 60s.
Huey is joined in New York by Moondog biographer Robert Scotto and poet and writer Magie Dominic who remembers meeting him in the 1960s. They take Huey to some of the places popular with Moondog, including Carnegie Hall and his regular pitch on 6th Avenue. Huey hears from the Swedish musician Stefan Lakatos who befriended Moondog when he moved to Europe, from composer John Zorn, saxophonist and composer John Harle and classical pianist and composer Joanna McGregor. The programme also includes rare recordings of Moondog speaking in the early 1980s.
