We’re off the air this week, but if you missed last week’s show with drummer/percussionist Will Calhoun, head on over to our archives to check it out. It’s also the last call for premiums from our summer fund drive. They all make nice gifts — for yourself or someone else. Choose between autographed copies of Will Calhoun’s brand new CD Celebrating Elvin Jones, available for a pledge of only $25; the Perfection CD by the MAC Power Trio of David Murray, Geri Allen, and drummer Teri Lynne Carrington also for a $25 pledge; or autographed copies of Quincy Troupe’s book Miles and Me about his relationship with Miles Davis, available for pledges of $35. All premiums include a year’s membership to WBAI and all proceeds go to supporting listener-supported free speech community radio in NYC. Many thanks to Motema Records for their donation of the CDs! And we have music listings for you!
