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 3-5-2019 - Fat Tuesday!




This week we celebrated Mardi Gras with
Fat songs! Songs with 'big', 'fat' and 'large' in the title - as always the theme shined light on some hidden gems as well as classic material. In addition we had 2 featured albums "Fat Albert Rotunda" by Herbie Hancock keeping with the theme, and "Domino" by Roland Kirk just because it's awesome. Hope you enjoyed! Some of the show can be listened to below. Thanks for tuning in! - Kendo
