Remembering Dan Perrino

4 pm today on WILL-FM's Live and Local. Kevin Kelly talks to some of those who knew Perrino best, ahead of WILL-TV's Thursday night program about him.

Dan Perrino, a longtime University of Illinois music professor, saxophonist and founder of the Medicare 7, 8 or 9 Dixieland jazz band, died almost exactly a year ago. He was loved and respected by students and friends far and wide for his work as a teacher, musician, mentor and more. On Thursday night at 8 pm, WILL-TV will air a special program about Dan and the band, and host Kevin Kelly will talk with a few of those who knew him well on the Tuesday edition of Live and Local.
