    Music Memory - David Basskin

    Music Memory is sponsored by the Alzheimer Society of Toronto, offering the "Music For Memory Project":  a program based on the effects of music and stimulation on people with dementia, by providing them with iPods containing personalized music. For more information, visit alz.to.

    This week's Music Memory comes from our very own David Basskin. Besides being a huge Jazz fan and quite knowledgeable in the genre, David is also a successful businessman and lawyer … your typical over-achiever!  You can often hear his profiles of various artists on “Wake Up … with Heather Bambrick”, and, or course, you’ll catch him each Friday night on JAZZ.FM91 as he hosts “Stolen Moments”.

    “My music memories number in the thousands, but close to the top of the list has to be the first time I saw Keith Jarrett perform live.

    It was a steaming hot night in early summer at the old Masonic Temple on Yonge Street - a packed auditorium and no air conditioning.  The anticipation was electric.  Everyone wanted to hear the new whiz kid, and we weren’t disappointed.  The sweat was rolling down our faces, but nobody coughed, nobody budged.  We were stunned.  I’ve heard Jarrett many times since, but nothing has ever matched the intensity or the impact of that night.”



    THANK YOU FOR HELPING US RAISE MORE THAN $325K IN OUR FINAL ON-AIR CAMPAIGN FOR 2017.  MORE THAN 1,300 OF YOU MADE A DECISION TO CONTRIBUTE OVER THE PAST NINE DAYS. WE WOULDN’T EXIST WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT.



    THANK YOU FOR PLAYING A PIVOTAL ROLE IN OUR SUCCESS.
