EMU alumnus Webster “Web” Kirksey has been a frequent WEMU pledge drive guest.  He has been a donor and supporter for many years.  During Black History Month, we wanted to give him an opportunity to share more about his life and how he became an ardent jazz fan.  We were delighted that he could spend time in the studio with Linda Yohn sharing thoughtful, swinging and meaningful music choices ranging from Charlie Parker and Miles Davis to Jimmy Scott.
