Sam Rivers Broadcast and Live Show

New Yorkers: Prepare for a healthy dose of Sam Rivers. Beginning on May 18 at noon, Columbia University’s WKCR station 89.9 FM will kick of a 177-hour continuous broadcast of Rivers’ music. The event will culminate with Rivers performing in a special one-night only concert at Columbia’s Miller Theatre on May 25.
