Apparently the vice-chancellor of Cambridge was seen in Muscle Shoals recently.

Atlantic got its start and made its foundation by recording black artists. Too bad the $ couldn't have gone to scholarships for black students in the U.S.

An aside - Mica Ertegun looks like she's been mummified in the accompanying photo.

And geez, ya' wonder why some people get all paranoid and resentful and militant and political about music and shit like that.

No good reason, no good reason at all.

More money to fund banksters, lawyers, trainee politicos and other assorted shysters :(

Hope they get none of it and it goes to more deserving causes like the scientists.

what a joke!! and i recall some people getting all 'upset' when some folks questioned the sanctity of Ahmet, who had NO PROBLEM with decades of limousine lifestyle starfu**ing (beyond what business needs he had, i.e. of course a CEO hangs with the 'elite' not hoi polloi) on the back of folks-- black, white, other-- saddled with knowingly exploitative contracts. how about some bones for

* Alcorn State, Jackson State, Mississippi Valley State, Rust College Tougaloo College

* Bethune-Cookman University, Edward Waters College, Florida A&M University, Florida Memorial University

* Haskell Indian Nations U in Lawrence, KS

I'll cut Neshui some slack, hoping at least he'd know better but these other Erteguns are shameless.
