Our annual Baseball and Jazz show is special this year for 3 reasons:
It is the 100th anniversary of the Black Sox fixing scandal,
and Dave Frishberg will tell us about it on disc.
Larry Nobori will guest to open the show
to discuss his Minidoka Swing Band's upcoming CD release
and California tour in May. The tour will feature a unique
Presidio of San Francisco concert coupled with a presentation
of 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 (like Minidoka) in America during WW II.
Also, this latest of my special shows,
falls toward the end of KBOO's spring membership drive.
Our listener-supported radio station relies on contributions
of people like you. Please be as generous as you can.
