Vintage David Bowie Rock Concert Badge Madison Square Garden 1978 WPLJ NY Pin Badge

Good condition souvenir pin/ badge from a New York City Madison Square Garden David Bowie show May 1978.

Picture it- I'm in junior high, off on the LIRR with my friend Heather G. from Mr. Frisco's algebra class, wearing the coolest clothes TSS offered ( that we could afford on babysitting money, anyway). Lights go down- he slinks on stage- we both immediately burst into tears...


2 1/4" diameter round pin with Bowie's Young Americans cover portrait.
Given from NY radio station WPLJ 95.5. Stashed away for over 30 years.

I knew he'd never marry me. But now I'm forced to trade in for 2 gallons of gas...
("...a pimp's got a Cadi and a lady's got a Chrysler..."). No matter; I will always love that man! And Mr. Jack Frisco, too. RIP old friend. And FYI, Jack- I didn't really need algebra as an adult...

Boy, etsy is SOOO much better than therapy.

Shipped safe but cheap in cardboard and envelope-
