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 7-3-2018 WFCF - Philadelphia Jazz!



Today, in celebration of July 4th Independence Day, we'll listen to artists who were born in or very close to Philadelphia, the city where it all went down! We don't have time to hit up everybody, but we'll get a lot of 'em, with special features on Ray Bryant, Bobby Timmons, Lee Morgan & more plus new release artists also from Philly! Tune in today (Tuesday 3/3/2018) from 3-7pm eastern by clicking here. The show will not be interrupted today so the Ride Home happens at 5pm. See you then! - Kendo
