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 2-4-2020 WFCF - Hank Garland!

This album was Hank Garland's vision come to life.



The night before this show I listened to some Hank Garland albums while I cooked and decided the next morning to do a show on him. A mutual follower on FB saw my post and alerted Hank's brother and sister-in-law, who called me at the station during the show (later messaging me) and regaled me with fun facts and information about the guitar giant and the songs we were listening to, to share with our listeners! They also posted a bunch of pictures on the Jazz Greats Facebook page (some shared here) including ones with Elvis, Barney Kessell, George Benson! Thanks to the Garland family and thanks to all who tuned in! Much love - Kendo
