Birthdays are celebrated everywhere – even in space. 

Washington DC native Astronaut Benjamin Alvin Drew, JR., a crew member on the final shuttle Discovery, received a special birthday gift from his sister, Karen Higginbotthem (sp?) on Nov 5. His sister heard an original birthday song “Happy Jazzy Birthday” on WPFW radio 89.3 fm’s Andrea Bray show on Saturdays from 4-7 pm.  Higginbotthem contacted the host Andrea Bray and asked how to get a copy of the birthday song so NASA could play the music in space on her brother’s birthday.
