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 12-9-14 WFCF - Rescue Show!

Rescue show! Every few months the jazz director sets out boxes of cds that did not get added to our library for anyone to cull through. The rest get tossed. That's the harsh reality of jazz in the new millennium. So many people are making albums, some of them great, some of them not so great (lots of them not so great, truthfully...). Each time I leave the station with arms full. Last week was one of those days, so this week I'm playing tracks from some of these "rescues". The result is a show that is largely recent releases. I'm down with that! We'll also dig on a Christmas jazz cut here and there. I'm actually in the 'spirit' this year! w00t! All that and plenty of brand new releases. Tune in from 3-7pm EST on WFCF 88.5FM or listen online for free on iHeart. See you then! - Kendo
