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. Former host/creator of syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler".

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

Playlist for 12-18-12 WFCF - Jazz Greats

Picked up this vinyl for a quarter at a thrift store today!

Holidays have made the past week a bit hectic - so I didn't pre-plan the show. Lots of vinyl from both the WFCF vault and my own collection, plenty of Christmas jazz and a fair smattering of jazz from the Tampa area. Last show of 2012! Thanks for tuning in and/or stopping by! Merry Christmas - DJ Kendo

No Miles Davis? No Cal Tjader? Unbelievable! And the morning dj/computer saboteur was at it again! But we prevailed. I'm pretty excited about the new Chris Higginbottom cd, and we begin to get Christmas-y... but not too much, I hope!
