WEMU: Dave Brubeck

Several staff members of WEMU share their memories of Dave Brubeck, the jazz legend who died earlier this week. Linda Yohn writes: “When we learned about Dave Brubeck’s death at WEMU it felt like there was a huge hole in our musical fabric. We serve the Ann Arbor, Michigan area where Dave performed on multiple occasions starting in the 1950s up to 2006. He was truly beloved by music fans in Ann Arbor. He was affectionately referred to as ‘Uncle Dave’. … His sincerity, spirituality, energy, intelligence, integrity and generosity allowed him to transcend all human boundaries be it age, race or culture.” [Source]
