Quote from the WSJ article: "Mr. Donaldson spent his youth glued to a short-wave radio that picked up the big bands from New York."

Yeah! How many of us started our jazz-loving lives that way? I still remember listening to various live broadcasts on a little radio I had built myself. I'd listen so long, my ear-lobes would get blisters from the war surplus headphones I used. But the music was the best!
(And thanks for another great article, Marc.)
