Michael Jackson Memorial Service
More than 1.6 million people registered for tickets to the event and only 17,500 tickets were made available through a lottery system. The ceremony will not be shown on the giant outdoor TV screen at Staples and there will be no funeral procession through the city.
KCRW deejays have put together a number of tributes to the late singer over the last couple weeks, all of which are available in the archives on a tribute site, as well as Elvis Mitchell’s interview with Margo Jefferson, author of “On Michael Jackson,” from The Treatment, available at: http://www.kcrw.com/music/michael-jackson
Neither tapes nor transcripts of KCRW music programs are available.
