Wavy Gravy is turning 80. He grew up in the Capital Region.

This Sunday is a landmark birthday for Hugh Romney. Who? You might know him better as Wavy Gravy, the hippie era MC who founded the Hog Farm, Camp Winnirainbow and has been a constant on the jam scene since its earliest days. Now, Wavy Gravy is turning 80. As we discovered in a 2011 Roundtable interview, Wavy Gravy has warm memories of his childhood in East Greenbush.

A lifelong resident of the Capital Region, Ian joined WAMC in late 2008 and became news director in 2013. He began working on Morning Edition and has produced The Capitol Connection, Congressional Corner, and several other WAMC programs. Ian can also be heard as the host of the WAMC News Podcast and on The Roundtable and various newscasts. Ian holds a BA in English and journalism and an MA in English, both from the University at Albany, where he has taught journalism since 2013.
