Two words: Little… Lotto.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers is proud to announce the sale of the jazz collection of beloved Chicago radio host Dick Buckley on Thursday, February 17, 2011. Buckley, who passed away on July 22, 2010 at 85, was a radio deejay in Chicago for over 50 years, spreading his passion for jazz to thousands of eager listeners.  He is best remembered as the host of a weekend radio show on Chicago Public Radio. He was known for his encyclopedic knowledge of the subject, his deep voice, and his relaxed speaking style.  His last show was broadcast July 27, 2008.

The sale will consist of over 8,000 jazz LPs, 45s, 78s, EPs, mixed tapes and CDs, including many home-made compilations, comprising Buckley’s personal archive. Also included in the sale are books and reel-to-reel broadcasts of his radio programs. This extensive collection will be offered in 92 box lots of approximately 100 items each, grouped by style, artist, instrument and format.

Interested parties may peruse the items during one of the two days of previews held at the gallery. The auction will take place live on Thursday, February 17, at 5pm. For more information on the auction, please contact Mary “Lou” Williams at 312-334-4236.
