Memorial Tribute to David Lifton

Air date: 
Wed, 12/30/2015 - 12:00pm to 4:00pm
A KBOO Legend has passed

Our beloved host of KBOO's long-running "A Jazz World" has unexpectedly passed.

This Wednesday, December 30, from noon to 4 p.m.,
the combined jazz shows of Nick Gefroh ("Jazz Lives") and myself
will present a 4-hour musical memorial to David Lifton.

We are inviting anyone who wishes to drop by, speak about David,
and bring and play a tune that David would have liked,
or that reminds that person of him.

If you would like to inform out-of-town family and friends,
we'll stream the show live at www.kboo/fm/listen
and the show wil be in the KBOO archives for 13 days after broadcast.

David was much more to KBOO that simply a program host.
Since the 1970s, he has served KBOO as program director and 
volunteer coordinator, and was perhaps KBOO's all-time best
pitcher-fund raiser - a true pillar of KBOO's 47 year history.

In sympathy,
Your hosts today,
Bob Riddle and Nick Gefroh
