Irwin Chusid
At 12:30 pm, Irwin welcomes pianist/historian John Davis to WFMU. Davis will discuss and play selections from his one-man multi-media production, Will the Real Thomas Wiggins Please Stand Up! Conceived, written, and performed by Davis, The Real Tom Wiggins features the charming and historically-evocative music of pianist "Blind Tom" Wiggins. A former slave who was both musically gifted and mentally impaired, Blind Tom was one of the most famous yet tragically exploited concert pianists of the 19th century. His appearances were promoted as P.T. Barnum-style freak shows, fueled by Tom's bizarre stage demeanor, the period's racial bigotry, and the diagnosis of Wiggins as autistic. Wiggins was a resident of New York City and Hoboken over the last 25 years of his life. John Davis Plays Blind Tom was released on CD by Newport Classics earlier this year.
