Dexter Calling

DexterGordonToday is tenor saxophonist Dexter Gordon‘s 90th birthday anniversary.  There are quite a few excellent clips of Gordon in performance.  We also listen to a number of tracks on the show this week.

Next Wednesday begins KUSP’s Membership Drive.  It would great to have you pledge during ITG.
