It's Dave Brubeck All Night: December 6th to 7th
Join WRTI as we celebrate 91 years of Dave Brubeck! The birthday festivities kick off at 6 pm with Bob Perkins as he plays some of Brubeck's true classics, and some lesser-known (yet still magnificent) works. At 9 pm, Maureen Malloy will bring you Brubeck's live recordings, selections from performances with his sons, and other music from his sons' band, The Brubeck Brothers. The music of this groundbreaking pianist/composer will continue until 6 am.
During this special night, be sure to visit our website, right here at wrti.org, to enter our BRUBECK ALL-NIGHT CONTEST.
Enter the contest and you could win the Dave Brubeck boxed set For All Time (five-CD set), Dave Brubeck: Legacy of a Legend (two-CD set), Their Last Time Out - a brand new, two-disc set of previously unreleased live music from the Brubeck Quartet, and a beautiful limited-edition WRTI ceramic mug.
Plus, all of the CDs and the mug are available as thank-you gifts, if you'd like to pledge. The mug's inscription says: "Brubeck all night, Beethoven all day." It's the perfect commemorative mug for a perfect month of special programming at WRTI.
