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.

Visit the artist's website!


Themed shows continue for the summer - this week it's "The Like Show"! All song titles (except for new jazz selections) have the word 'like' in them. If it sounds akin to a nightmare evening with an uber-positive cartoon character, no worries; all of the usages of the word 'like' are in the comparative. Musical moods and emotions will be scintillatingly varied. Tune in for all the scintillation on Tuesday 7/29 from 3-7pm eastern. Listen online for free here (US only), and by all means come say hey on the twitter! See you then - Kendo

"Cry Baby Cry" - Invisible Ninja

Visit the artist's website!


It's another themed show this week - the "Baby Baby Show"! All the song titles have the "B" word in them, although you'll find that most of the songs are decidedly not about infants ;)

At the station last week were 3 gargantuan boxes of Jazz cds for the taking, and of course I came prepared with a decent sized empty. We'll hear a couple of tracks from a few of those albums as well as a lot of other material that hasn't been aired on the show before (I love themed shows for that reason!); a few tasty jams from Miles and the show will conclude with a nice love-fest from Charles Lloyd's heyday (<I'm officially old.) Come say "hi" on the Facebook, and listen live via the iHeart! Four hours of baby jazz airs Tuesday 7/15 from 3-7pm eastern. See you then! - Kendo

Playlist for 7-8-2014 WFCF - Jazz Greats the J Show!


"Blue Jay" - Sadelise
acrylic on paper
Visit the artist's website!


This week's show is brought to you by the letter "J". Yep, it's a themed show. All the artists on the playlist have first names that begin with the letter "J". The other thing going on here is that all of the tracks have never been played on the show before (except for the last one - could not resist a little A Go Go). I had a lot left over - so this might be a two-parter; no Coltrane! The only track I really felt like playing is "Sun Ship" - not everyone's cup of tea. But I might bring it and slip it in somewhere and then duck & cover. Tune in for the jazz Tuesday 7/8/14 from 3-7pm eastern. Listen for free online by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo
