Jazz Greats Tuesdays on WFCF

"Jazz Greats" every Tuesday from 3-7pm Eastern on WFCF 88Five St. Augustine! From seriously ancient to just-released, from the obscure & forgotten to household names - but always tasty! There's a slight emphasis on 60's & 70's jazz (always a track from CTI) with a few tablespoons of fun & local flavor thrown in. Click here to listen online!

Also check out Palm Coast Jazz, a podcast I co-host filled with splendid original jazz from Florida musicians! My syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler" is on hiatus since I've become jazz director at WFCF.

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

Playlist for 11/27/12 WFCF - Jazz Greats

Compelling album by piano great Ron Miller

What a beautiful day! Today's show was a bit of a surprise - Mariann hurt her leg and had to stay home, doctor's orders! Nonetheless - it was a blast, as always. The ride from Palm Coast to Saint Augustine was the best one yet - windows down, sunshine and 78 degrees, awesome! It looks like I will be taking over the show, and Mariann will guest dj from time to time. I'm pretty excited and happy to be back 'in the groove'. Thanks for listening & for stopping by! - Kendo
