Mike Curb, Cha-Ching!

Posted on Tue, Oct 3, 2006 at 4:00 AM

Producer Mike Curb has had a long, impressive career, working with everyone from Sammy Davis Jr. to LeAnn Rimes. He is the chairman of Curb Records of Nashville and also served as lieutenant governor of California and has been a multi-million dollar benefactor to universities in Tennessee and California.

Curb also managed to snag Elvis' Audubon house even after spoon-bending psychic Uri Geller won it from an eBay auction. (Geller is suing).

On Thursday, Curb will be at the Arts Leadership Conference at Rhodes College, where college president William Troutt will announce Curb's latest venture, which a press release issued by Rhodes says is a "sizable donation to bring together educators, students, archivists, and artists as well as business and communities leaders to promote Southern musical traditions."
