Jazz Tribute to John Wendeborn

On Wednesday, June 13, from noon until 4 p.m.,

Nick Gefroh and KBOO alum Bob Dietsche will host

a musical trbute to John Wendeborn.  "Wende" has been writing,

playing, and promoting jazz  for 62 years.  A valve trombonist,

John played with the U. S. Army band in Tokyo.

For many years a music columnist for the Oregonian,

John has put on many memorable Portland jazz shows,

including Miles Davis at the old Oriental theatre;

produced the long-running "Madness" jazz series

at the Benson Hotel;  promoted many of the acts at the

Mt. Hood Festival of Jazz;  brought his personal friend

and legend Slim Gaillard to Portland to perform -

and may have set a record for number of friends at one time.

Please join us to hear many of these friends -

both in our studio and in the best of jazz recordings.
