HERB’S KCSM CHRISTMAS SHOW STILL ON

Anticipating he might not survive until Christmas, Dr. Herb Wong taped his entire Christmas special radio show several months ago. This would have been Herb’s 50th Christmas show, a tradition thousands of Bay Area jazz fans have looked forward to every year. KCSM will air Herb’s final Yule program on Christmas morning, exact times to be announced.

THE WOODY HERMAN ORCHESTRA
In tribute to Dr. Herb Wong

Menlo-Atherton High School's Center for the Performing Arts

Woody, of course, is no longer with us, but a group of alumni all-stars, led by Frank Tiberi, continues to carry the torch and keep those great Herd charts alive.  This is a rare Bay Area appearance for the WHO. Dr. Herb Wong had a special bond with Woody Herman, and Marilyn Wong conceived this concert as a final tribute to Herb.  Please join us at this beautiful 492 seat concert hall, an easy drive from anywhere in the mid-Peninsula.
