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 get back to academia, but has been with that “little station”... now the impressive Minnesota Public Radio/American Public Media enterprise... for fifty years, first as music director, and for the past 35 years as host-producer of Pipedreams. The organ scene at Oberlin has changed quite a bit during the past half century.
