Bob Craig Pays Tribute To Tim Hauser

Timothy Hasuer (1941-2014)

Join WRTI's Bob Craig this Sunday, Oct 26th as he remembers Manhattan Transfer founder and artist Tim Hauser by playing part of an interview with Tim from four years ago - listen to clips of that interview below.

An Ocean Township, NJ native and Villanova graduate, Hauser started his musical career right here in our region, and then branched out to New York City, where he wore a few different hats before establishing one of the most popular jazz groups of his era.

The jazz world lost Tim Hauser on October 16th, 2014 which is why we plan to celebrate his life and his music on this week's Voices In Jazz, this Sunday, Oct. 26th at 5 PM on WRTI HD-2, or the All-Jazz web stream at wrti.org. You'll hear Hauser talk about his local roots, his career path and, of course, music.  Click below to hear some clips.

Tim Hauser was proud to be considered a Mad Man!
