More pubcasting help for Haiti

WAMC/Northeast Public Radio will open its phone banks at 8 p.m. Friday during a James Taylor benefit concert for Haiti in Great Barrington, Mass. The Albany, N.Y., station will simulcast the concert, "Help for Haiti: An Intimate Evening with James Taylor." All contributions will go to Partners in Health, a group on the island providing medical care to victims. "We need to do everything we can to help the country recover after this tragic earthquake," Taylor said in a station statement. "I'm grateful to do my part and hope my neighbors here in the Berkshires will join me and be as generous as possible." UPDATE: This benefit performance sold out within 90 minutes, already raising $150,000, matched by James and Kim Taylor for a $300,000 total. A second concert has been added for Saturday.
