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 8-19-2014 WFCF - Black & Blue Show!!

This week's theme is "Black & Blue"! All song titles have the word 'black' or 'blue' in them. We hit up most of the 'black' songs in my library last week, but I saved a few for this show. For the 'blue' songs I tried to stay away from titles like "Blues for Alice", so we wouldn't have a whole show of 12 bar heads. Plenty of interesting material - can't wait to spin it! Tune in Tuesday August 19 from 3-7pm eastern. Listen online here.  See you then! - KendoCome say "hi" on Twitter!
