The baseball show is special indeed this year for 2 reasons:
It is the 100th anniversary of the Black Sox fixing scandal,
and Dave Frishberg will tell us about it on disc; and
Larry Nobori will open the show as guest to discuss,
and play music from, his Minidoka Swing Band's upcoming CD release.
The band's upcoming California tour in May will feature a unique
San Francisco Presidio concert, coupled with a presentation
on the Japanese-American experience during World War II.
We'll talk about the special connection between this band, baseball,
and contributions of both to ease the lives of internees in those
concentration camps in America during WW II.
Also, this latest of my special shows,
falls toward the end of KBOO's spring membership drive.
We hope you will renew, or become a new member, of KBOO-FM 90.7
