However, his Dad would drop him off at school on his way to work, he would give Ben a dime to buy a newspaper at the nearby corner store.
His dad didn’t have time to read the paper at work, so Ben would bring it to school with him. And since he was (and still is) a voracious reader, Ben actually read the paper and got interested in current events. He also had an interest in science — in particular, space exploration as well as the race to get a man to the moon. When that finally happened, Ben watched Walter Cronkite and his excitement and knowledge as he covered the historic event.

Ben considered for three days whether to take the offer, a good friend of his said it would be an opportunity to spread science. So he accepted, and the opportunity also led to a chance to meet and sit in with some of the best local musicians.
