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 2-19-2019 WFCF - Last Impressions!




Artists and producers in the late 50's and throughout the 60's were careful about the layout of albums, how they should start, the flow, and how they should end. Last week we listened to the final statement on a bunch of classic jazz albums (the last track). Thanks for tuning in - hope you enjoyed. Below is the last hour of the show you can listen to if you missed it! - Kendo
