That would be  for Leanard Falconi -- the i at the end procounced  "ee" 
- who was the long time directorof bands at Michigan State, my alma mater.
He was an artist on the big horns, and a fine conductor of one of the 
better college bands, I tranferred in in my junior year from Colorado 
College and had to audition for the band. I passed and was accepted, but 
because of a change of major, I had to decline to join because of having to
carry extra hours to make up for the  losses in tranferring.
Blue Lake is still going strong - and they have an FM station that does 
feature jazz in its schedule, though mainly of modern/contemporary 
styles, though once iin a while they feature a classic player of the 
OKOM school.
