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.

The Harlem Globetrotters will perform tonight at Eastern Michigan University's Convocation Center.  That's less than a month since long time player Meadowlark Lemon passed away.

Tonight's scheduled basketball game between the Eastern Michigan University Eagles and Ohio University Bobcats has been canceled due to a robbery on the Ohio University campus this morning.   

Ohio University officials say a gunman robbed a student around 9:30 this morning.  Because the suspect has not been apprehended, Ohio University canceled classes and activities for the remainder of the day.   Tonight's game will be re-scheduled.
