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 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
