Three music birthdays this month: Billie Holiday, Charles Mingus, Duke Ellington
There are three very special birthdays this month in the music world; Billie Holiday, April 7, 1915, Charles Mingus, April 22, 1922, and Duke Ellington, April 29, 1899. WKCR New York City radio 89.9 F.M. www.wkcr.org celebrates these birthdays with 24 hour broadcasts. They have been doing this for over 40 years, and I've been listening to them for over 25 years. I highly recommend them. See www.wkcr.org for details on the broadcasts and further information.
