Benefit for Charles Neville

Charles Neville – beloved saxophonist, national treasure, and standard-bearer for New Orleans culture – is presently battling pancreatic cancer. A musical tribute and fundraiser will take place on February 3rd at the Academy of Music Theatre in Northampton, Massachusetts. The concert includes special guest performances by Aaron Neville, Charmaine Neville, Khalif Neville, Mitch Chakour, Youssoupha Sidibe, Henri Smith, and others. For those who can’t attend the concert in Northampton but would like to make a contribution, a fund has been setup to help offset medical costs and support Charles and his family as they face a year of tremendous difficulty. You can learn more about the event and make a donation online here.


We rely on your support to remain on air and online. Your contribution helps us bring you interviews with great American artists and the carefully curated music mix that you’ve enjoyed over the years.
