Musician Eddie Money, who died Sept. 13 at the age of 70, performed in Bardo Gym during the Fall 1982 semester. As detailed by 1983 journalism grad Marsha J. Roux in that year’s edition of Williamsport Area Community College’s Montage yearbook, Money – appearing in jeans, a San Francisco Giants T-shirt and sneakers – brought the sing-along crowd to its feet with a set that included “Baby Hold On” and “Two Tickets to Paradise” from his self-titled debut album. “I like playing at college campuses and WACC was one of the best audiences we’ve had,” Money said. “Seriously, it was a lot of fun.”
