Happy Birthday, Robert Moog!

Today is Robert Moog’s 78th birthday.  It also happens to be my 62nd!

I remember working with the Moog Synthesizer in Temple University in the basement of the music building.  I believe one of the three cabinets was serial #2.  I happened to be the first undergraduate permitted to use it.  That was because I fixed the power supply a day before one of the graduate students had to use it in a recital.

Thank you Dr. Taylor for the chance to use that machine for a year!  Thank you Mr. Moog for such a fantastic musical instrument!

Google did a cute doodle for his birthday!
