If you know this theme song, then you’re familiar with “West Coast Live,” heard Saturday mornings on KALW. And you know that Mike Greensill, the program’s resident piano player, is at the keyboard. The Mike Greensill Trio will be performing, along with Wesla Whitfield, on Saturday, July 20th at the Piedmont Piano Company in Oakland. The music begins at 8:00pm.
KALW is hosting a public remembrance of our long-time announcer and all-round cultural diplomat, Alan Farley. Alan died October 21st, after 39 years with this station. Several musicians associated with KALW will present music at the event: Wesla Whitfield & Mike Greensill, David Latulippe, Eric Wayne and Sarah Cahill. The event takes place next Monday, November 19th at the Green Room of the War Memorial Building at San Francisco’s Civic Center, from 5 to 8 pm.
