In these first two segments, we’re going to learn about Jerrie Mock—and about local artists who helped commemorate the 50th anniversary of her pioneering flight around the world.
Columbus-Area Bands Jam for Alabama Tornado Survivors
Listen to the Story
Just a little more than a month ago, 53 confirmed tornadoes ripped through Alabama killing 238 people, injuring more than 1,000 others and causing billions of dollars in damage.
At the time, WOSU’S Mandie Trimble traveled to her home state to help with clean-up. Since returning, Trimble tells us she has organized a benefit to help victims who continue to dig through the rubble.
“Jammin’ for Bama,” a benefit concert for victims of tornadoes in Alabama is scheduled for Thursday night from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m. at Woodlands Tavern at 1200 West Third Avenue. Among the bands appearing are Willie Phoenix, Josh Krajcik, Billy Zen and Throat Culture.
