Jazz in the Afternoon on 03/27/13
Renowned jazz drummer and long-time Portland resident Dick Berk
will be featured and honored today during KBOO's 45th anniversary
Spring Membership Drive. Dick's discography is too extensive
to cover in one show, so today we'll showcase Dick's many years
of wonderfully swinging music leading his Jazz Adoption Agency.
Dick is ailing and can't be with us in person today.
We ask you to send a get-well card to Dick in care of Bob Riddle, KBOO-FM,
20 SE 8th ave., Portland, OR 97214. We aim to get him well
to hear his voice for Part II of Dick Berk's specials -
featuring his music with Billie Holiday from the first 1958 Monterey Jazz Festival,
his years with Cal Tjader and much more - planned for his birthday, May 22.
Please give generously to KBOO today. We need you!
With regards, your host, Bob Riddle
