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 7-25-2017 WFCF - Hotter Than July!

July at Flagler Beach - 2011



Hi and happy Tuesday! Today's show theme is "Hotter Than July" - all the tracks (except new releases) were recorded in the month of July! We're in the dog days here in Florida and I thought it would be neat to hear music that captures the essence of midsummer. I'm sure the recording studios were stuffy at best and the walks, trains & subways to them were sweltering. Amazingly, the discomfort seems to only cause the artists to dig and search a little deeper. We'll hear a lot of music never before played on the show, along with a few classic cuts and new releases on the half hours. Tune in today (Tuesday July 25th) from 3-7pm eastern with a break at 5 by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo
