In Memoriam: Miriam Bienstock

Tonight's show is dedicated to "the money man" of Atlantic records...who in 1947 was an unusual  woman of business...fierce, tenacious...Miriam Abramson Bienstock. Miriam passed just a few days ago, and for keeping the young company solvent we owe her deeply. Nothing after the first few years would have happened...thank you dear Miriam. We mourn your passing among family and many friends. 

Ahmet, Miriam and Jerry
