A memorial tribute show for KKFI 90.1's Curt "The Rocker" Mason will go down on March 26 at Record Bar, which is billed as "an event to honor a friend, help charities, and rock Kansas City."
Here's what the press release says:
Curt Mason hosted The Rocker on 90.1 KKFI FM for 12 years. His show was homegrown featuring custom playlists created from his own vast music collection focusing on a heavy rock music format. His style of programming was extremely diverse for the Midwest region. Curt was a natural radio DJ, but his true love was programming. He had a pulse on the music industry and his audience, being a great fan himself. Curt "The Rocker" had an open door policy for taking music requests and dedications which was clearly the cornerstone of his show. He loved and appreciated his legions of fans and honored the music with his heart and soul.
A memorial tribute show for Curt "The Rocker" Mason will be held at 9 p.m., Saturday, March 26, at RecordBar. The event will honor Curt Mason, who tragically passed away October 1, 2010. Doors open at 9 p.m., and admission is $10. The show features performances by the Outta Styles, Rocker Lips, and the Tards. Raffle prizes, a handcrafted Thin Lizzy quilt, T-shirts, posters, music DVDs and CDs will be available. All proceeds will benefit the Animal Haven Charity (due to Curt's love for his cat, Jeff) and the Roisin Dubh Trust Charity (as Curt was a fan of Thin Lizzy and Irish rock and blues artists).
