Don Manning Memorial Service Information

The  Memorial for Don Manning, long time KBOO jazz host, will take place this  Sunday September 21st, at Multnomah Arts Center, 7688 SW Capital Highway from  2:30 - 4:30 pm.

A jazz trio with Lee Reinoehl, piano, Nick Gefroh, drums, and unnamed bass player will play, and NIck says jazz musicians are invited to "bring their axes!" to honor Don's memory.

Don's family hopes the community will turn out and "make this a real sendoff for Don."

Don Manning hosted "Bebop Spoken Here" for more than 25 years on KBOO. He was a jazz drummer and loved to interview his Bebop heroes on the air.

Bob Riddle/Rita Rega/Don Manning

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;
