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!
