Bill Bleyer has a knack for finding history - or maybe it finds him. He had front row seats for Woodstock, did battle with Robert Moses, and got tear-gassed at the 1972 Republican National Convention. Now, after a decades-long career in journalism at Newsday, he writes books about the history of Long Island.

Today's interview covers Bill's career, his love for rock and roll, and the interesting corners of the Island's history that he's found over the years.
