Music fest stays true to its roots

Bruce Figler, a DJ on 107.1 The Peak, got his start in rock’n’roll radio when Howard Stern hired him at WRNW FM – the forerunner to The Peak that broadcast from a Briarcliff backstreet in the 1970s.

Now Figler’s something of a rock impresario, running the Pleasantville Music Festival. As the event returns this summer after a two-year hiatus, Figler stayed true to his roots, giving locally grown talent a shot in the spotlight alongside nationally known acts. Here’s a look at the lineup.
