KSBR Operations Director Terry Wedel said, “what makes the KSBR Birthday Bash unique is that most of the participating musicians are bandleaders in their own right, but on this day, everyone plays each other's music in various all-star configurations, making each Bash a once-in-a-lifetime experience for both the artists and the audience,”
