He was first Mayor of Knox in the 1950s. He was a Studebaker Dealer when the South Bend manufactured car was “cool,” and he was a clothing store owner in the building that now houses Fingerhut Bakery. I’m talking about the late Glen Kay who passed away on this date exactly 35 years ago today.
His real love was Dixieland Jazz music. He and his wife, Alice, helped organize the Illiana Jazz Club in the mid 1970s. It now has over a thousand members.
Ted Hayes will tell the Glen Kay story tomorrow on “Ted Hayes Remembers” at 12:20 and 5:30 p.m. CT.
