My buddy Ron sent me a note last week telling me about Wellstone World Music Day, which will be October 25, the first anniversary of the plane crash that killed Paul, Sheila, and Marcia Markuson Wellstone along with campaign aides Mary McEvoy, Tom Lapic and Will McLaughlin. It's the brainchild of Minneapolis music critic Jim Walsh, and it is intended to celebrate the life and fighting spirit of the late Senator. Take a moment and check it out.
I note that the Wellstone site contains a link to the Daniel Pearl Foundation, and that October 10 is the second Daniel Pearl Music Day, on what would have been the slain journalist's 40th birthday. Two dates to mark on your calendar.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 30, 2003 to Music | TrackBack
