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.

This week's show has an American theme, since Independence Day is upon us; one of my favorite holidays! Songs will either have an Americana feel to them, or be named after locations in our beautiful country. I had to narrow down from a whole bunch of selections to fit into the allotted time, so expect another "American" show in the future! Festivities begin Tuesday 7/2/13 from 3-7pm Eastern. You can listen online here. See you then! - Kendo
