In 2000, Bill was inducted into the FILKONtario Hall of Fame for his contributions to record, publishing, writing and performing filk. According to the inductee page “Bill runs a great filksing. His brand of “organized chaos” makes for the most wonderful, interactive, participatory filk experience that can be had anywhere.”
