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 1-15-13 WFCF - Jazz Greats

A few songs from my childhood popping up on this show. I used to sit and listen to "African Waltz" over and over til my folks went crazy. Also "Cotton Candy" made famous by Al Hirt but Bert K's version has a swing solo section! Brand new tracks from quite a few Florida artists are featured as well. Show was lots of fun - thanks for the calls, texts & facebook shares. Come give the new page a like if you haven't been :) - DJ Kendo
