2000 Musical Obituaries

Compiled by George Graham

As broadcast on WVIA-FM 12/27/2000

Time once again for another feature of our annual year-end wrapup, our radio obituary page, noting the passing of people from the music world, whom we lost during 2000. As usual, a few are household names, while many others are people whose influence is perhaps better known than their names, and whose passing the commerical media largely ignores. I'll read them in chronological order of passing. We'll start with one from the very end of last year, whom we did not get a chance to report at the time.

Dates not available:
  • Stanley Turrentine, jazz saxophone great
  • Dave Shogren, founding member of the Doobie Brothers
  • Baden Powell, Brazilian guitarist, songwriter, 63
  • Jack Mitzsche, producer, rock artist
  • Zeke Manners, wrote "Pennsylvania Polka"
  • Doris Kenner-Jackson, member of the Shirelles
  • Joe Higgs, reggae singer and innovator
