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 12-5-2017 WFCF - Baubles, Bangles and Beads!

203.04 carat De Beers Millennium Star Diamond


When I was a kid, the back of our world atlas had a guide to all the known precious stones. With some frequency I would sprawl out on the floor, crack that giant tome open and gaze at the dazzling pictures; even occasionally remembering the stone names. Let's just say that video games and home computers hadn't happened yet.

Anyway - I came across a half-finished playlist on my desktop and decided to follow through - hence this week we have the "Baubles, Bangles & Beads" show! Songs about gems and jewelry by the likes of MJQ, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Drew Jr., Stan Kenton, Bill Evans, Wayne Shorter and much more plus a few open slots for new releases. Tune in on Tuesday Dec 5th from 3-7pm eastern (with a break at 5) by clicking here. See you then! - Kendo
