KEDM Big Band Classic
Radio host Richard “The Boomerang Man” Harrison was the guest of honor at Big Band Blast, hosted by his own home on the dial, KEDM 90.3 Public Radio. Harrison is the host of “Mostly Big Bands,” a KEDM program that has aired continuously for more than 20 years.
Also honored during the roast was Harrison’s long-suffering wife, Jean, who has “loaned” her husband to the radio world every Friday night during the show’s long run. Both Harrisons are fixtures in community organizations.
The Dan Sumner Quartet provided musical entertainment, while the roast itself included such popular locals as Michael Echols, Bill Rambin and Mara Loeb.
