810 & 103.1 WGY News Anchor Jim Gagliardi speaks to Justin Hayward of the Moody Blues ahead of Hayward’s solo show at The Egg on August 6, 2013

I have been a fan of the Moody Blues for a long time. I was a part time disk jockey at a much smaller Schenectady station and in the summer of 1968 the program and music director put ‘Tuesday Afternoon’ in  the rotation.  When I went back to college in Boston, my roommate turned me on to the album ‘Days Of Future Passed’ then I saw my first Moody Blues Concert at the old Boston Garden in the fall of  1972.  I have seen them in concert another 18 times and I have had the good fortune of interviewing Justin Hayward, John Lodge and Graeme Edge.  Justin is in town, promoting the release of his new solo album, ‘Spirits of the Western Sky’.  I interviewed him the day before the Tuesday night show at the EGG  Here is the full interview…and this is for all the loyal Moodies fans out there.
