The incomparable Don Manning,.
long time host of "Bebop Spoken Here" on KBOO,
has passed on Tuesday, September 9, 2014.
We collectively owe a debt of gratitude to Don,
as well as KBOO managers over these many years,
for continuing the tradition of unique jazz hosts on KBOO.
It is this uniqueness, balanced by a true love and respect
for this jazz music, that, we feel, keeps our listeners coming back,
staying with us, and wanting to become members.
Nick Gefroh is hosting an on-air tribute to Don,
on his show, "Jazz Lives!", on Wednesday, September 10.
We only wish Don could hear it all "live".
Nick planned it while Don was still with us;
