A Beach Boy and a radio station are being added to the Rochester Music Hall of Fame in 2019.
Al Jardine, who lived in Rochester as a child before moving to California where he helped found the Beach Boys, was named as a 2019 inductee.
Radio station WCMF is also among the 2019 inductees and will become the first radio station to be included in the Rochester Music Hall of Fame. Long-time disc jockey Dave Kane will also get a spot in the hall
“Rochester has a rich and diverse musical heritage and we are proud to foster and celebrate that through the Rochester Music Hall of Fame,” writes Jack Whittier, president of the Rochester Music Hall of Fame.
Also making the cut for 2019 is Jeff Springut, a music promoter and the former owner of Henrietta nightclub the Red Creek Inn that was a hot spot in the 70s, 80s, and 90s, folk singer-songwriter Christine Lavin, and Emmy Award-winning composer Jack Allocco.
Jardine, Lavin and Jack Allocco will also perform at the official induction ceremony at the Eastman Theatre on April 28.
