Musical Interlude: WOLD (1973)

The late Harry Chapin is best remembered for three hit songs. "Cat's in the Cradle" has been covered by artists as diverse as Ricky Skaggs and Ugly Kid Joe. "Taxi" spawned a follow-up, "Sequel", which was Chapin's last hit before his passing in 1981, and "WOLD", the story of an aging radio DJ trying to reconnect with his ex-wife and realizing his life has passed him by, based on real-life Boston DJ Jim Connors. WOLD does exist as a radio station, having launched on the FM band, not AM, in 1968 in Virginia.

The following is, from appearances, a live performance, date unknown.
