Bob Does a "Ted" Talk

At a recent event in Indianapolis, at the Eli Lilly Headquarters, there was a TEDxLILLY daylong festival. Many excellent speakers were presented, and it ended with a party and celebration. The theme of the day was Reinvention.

Bob Dorough was invited to this event and did a Ted Talk. His presentation included three songs from his Schoolhouse Rock oeuvre, one of the songs being “Mother Necessity.” Bob rounded out his 15+ minutes (yes, speakers are given only 15+ minutes to do their thing)

with a talk about his several re-inventions of himself, the most important one being his declaration at the age of 13 or 14 - “I’m going to be a musician,” simply stated to his parents. Perhaps you will see it on Youtube some day. here are a few photos taken on that day (May 14, 2015).
