Episode 148 - David Bieber

If you have ever been to the Verb Hotel, or perhaps seen the recent documentary WBCN – An American Revolution, or hopefully visited the Folk Americana Roots Hall of Fame at the Wang Theater in Boston, you have seen artifacts gathered by Mr. David Bieber.

David hails from Cleveland but has lived in Boston since he moved here to attend BU as a journalism major in 1968 – right at the beginning if the reign of WBCN.  From there he went on to work for WBCN, as well as WFNX, and The Boston Phoenix among others and through those many years gathered all the posters, magazines, photos, reel to reel tapes, LP’s and other ephemeral to fill enough tractor trailers to necessitate moving into an enormous warehouse in Norwood, Mass at the Norwood Space Center.

We were lucky enough to chat with David at The David Bieber Archives recently surrounded by piles of memorabilia and boxes upon boxes of awesomeness.
