The passing of George Duke hits all of us hard at The Jazz of The City. WCLK has played his music from day one, and it was a joy to bring him to our members and listeners for last Spring's WCLK benefit concert. WCLK's announcers will be playing a lot of his music today and in the days to come, remembering that part of George Duke that will never die, his music.
Join WCLK on our Facebook or on twitter to let us know your favorite George Duke memories and songs.
