Duke Ellington

Duke Ellington deserves a separate room in any musical hall of fame. His orchestra included countless musicians already listed in that hall. His songs "Mood Indigo", "Sophisticated Lady", "In a Sentimental Mood" and "Take the A Train" and a host of others still remain on any major list.

Tune in for this special Monday, April 4 at 8:00 p.m.

Driving Mrs. Roosevelt

Sep 18, 2014

Have you ever had the opportunity to sit and converse with greatness, and to be enveloped in their aura?

In the 50's one could still work their way through college. One of my jobs was as a campus guide for the PR department of my school, Brandeis University in Waltham, Massachusetts. The annual Board meeting and Arts Festival were held each June.
