AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
WYEP has a bid in to purchase WDUQ, and we hear the plan is to take away Jazz programming.
So many Jazz musicians have called me up and asked me to use my organizer skills to help them, that I am bound to respond. As an organizer, I know that the first thing you need to win is a strong organization that is willing to fight. So, are you willing to fight?
A new organization is forming now; a chapter of ACTION United, one specifically for musicians, that will fight for the needs of musicians. Right now, Jazz musicians stand to lose their only media venue in Pittsburgh. There are lots of other things we can work on, too, once we win this! Please join as soon as you can!
April 1, mark your calendars! New Orleans style Second Line Action to Save Jazz on WDUQ Radio! Location TBA! Oh, this is going to be so much fun! Please message me if you want to get on the list! We need 25 instrumentalists and a lot of drummers, hand percussionists, marchers and singers and dancers!
Place: Meet in 18th Street Parking lot
We will March to 12th street, Bedford Square to deliver petitions to Save Our Jazz!
We can win this, I am sure, but only if everyone participates!
