40TH ANNIVERSARY WEBCASTS OF LEW GOODMAN'S RADIO SHOWS

From November 1, 1968, when he was just 17 (you know what I mean), until March 31, 1973, when he was a ripe old 22, Lew Goodman hosted "Super Session" (a title that he eventually rarely used) on WFUV—90.7 FM—in New York City. It evolved from a pure progressive rock show into one in which humor superseded the music.

Lew's third-from-last show, which was broadcast live, in mono, from March 9, 1973 till early the next day is now available for the first time since that night—digitally restored and in stereo (thanks to the amazing Neil Litt).
