Charles 'Truck' Parham

'Truck' Parham called me recently to tell me that WGN-TV was running a piece on him that night on their news show. I'm very glad that he did call as it was an excellent piece. Well deserved. WGN did about 15 minutes on Truck with nice interviews, pictures with Art Tatum, Pearl Bailey etc. and shots of him with Franz Jackson at Joe's Bebop Cafe.
