Jake Hanna Tribute Wed Dec 28 at 1 pm on WPKN-FM

WPKN-FM Bridgeport (89.5 Mhz) will be broadcasting a tribute to Jake on the Carl Frano Show this Wed. December 28, from 1-4 pm EST.  Those outside of the listening area can hear the show online by clicking on the Live Play button in the Listen Now box in the upper left section of the website

Many thanks to Joe Corsello for arranging this. He was invited to be the musical guest but very kindly suggested they instead pay tribute to Jake. He’s been busy pulling music together to feature on the show.

Happy Boxing Day to all.

Merry Christmas from the Jake Hanna book

Merry Christmas to all the Jake Hanna fans, friends and family members. 

A few months ago, for inspiration, I hung a poster-sized picture of Jake on the wall of my office, and surrounded it with some of his albums. Since he liked to celebrate the holidays I try to decorate the wall in appropriate seasonal fashion. Here's the Christmas decor. And yes, that is a figgy pudding that he's drumming on.
