Winter jazz series opens
The Western Carolina Classic Radio Club will meet Monday, Jan. 9 at 2 p.m. in Studio 118 on the ICC Polk campus. A George Burns TV special from 1984, “How To Live To Be 100,” will be presented. Burns, who did live to 100, advises viewers on how to fulfill their New Year’s resolutions. Bob Hope, a guest on the show, adds his own brand of advice and humor.
Burns and his wife, Gracie Allen, toured England in 1929, doing a vaudeville act, and first appeared on the BBC. They performed on American radio from 1932 to 1950 and then turned to television, where their successful show ran from 1950 to 1958.
At about 3:05 p.m., the WOTJ Winter Jazz Series will open with what some have said is the greatest jazz concert ever. “The Quintet at Massey Hall,” featuring Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Bud Powell, Charlie Mingus and Max Roach, is the only time this group recorded together.
All are welcome, and there is no charge.
