As we say farewell to Rufus Harley let's not forget that the 70th birthday 
anniversary of Rahsaan Roland Kirk is tomorrow (August 7th).  He too played 
exotic instruments and got his start as a young boy on the garden hose as 
well as the hoola hoop.

The city government of his hometown of Columbus, OH has made a formal 
proclamation designating this week "Rahsaan Roland Kirk Week."  There is 
also a local Columbus philanthropist that is putting together a RRK 
scholarship fund to the tune of 100 thousand dollars for a deserving music 
student in Columbus.

WCBE-FM is programming an hour long special on RRK's life which should also 
air on Weekend America and I've produced a 12 minute mini doc for our 
cultural arts magazine "Around Noon" which will air tomorrow at noon Eastern 
Standard Time.  Interviewees include, Joel Dorn, Candice Kirk (his sister), 
WCBE's Jack Marchbanks, Dorthaan Kirk and some deftly placed comments from 
Rahsaan himself culled from his extensive monologues found on recordings 
over the years.  There of course will be music samples.

It's a new world for me producing wise but I'm making the most of it.

Aloha,

Bobby Jackson
WCPN-FM/Cleveland, OH

> MTO Volume 1 is the debut album from Steven Bernstein's Millennial 
> Territory Orchestra.  The nine-piece outfit features some of Gotham's most

> into and savor Bernstein's arrangements like the tangiest Kansas City

> Johnson's ''Boy in the Boat,'' Bennie Moten's ''Toby'') and the kind of 
> contemporary pop and R&amp;B hits (Prince's ''Darling Nikki,'' Stevie 
> Wonder's ''Signed, Sealed, Delivered'') that have long been part of 
> Bernstein's repertoire. The vibrancy of the playing, the wit and sass of 
> the arrangements, uncovers the genetic code that makes Bennie Moten and 
> Prince funk-soul brothers of the first order. All this, without once 
> conjuring the snoot of academe or dreaded notions of ''post-modern jazz.''
