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. Former host/creator of syndicated show "Kendo's Jazz Sampler".

Song titles with an asterisk are "currents" at the time of airplay.

New Video Series with DJ Kendo!

 I've recently resurrected the YouTube channel associated with the "Jazz Greats" radio show. Trying to make the content more of what I myself would like to see in my feed... so not clickbait, not disingenous, fun, novel, (hopefully) unique and mostly sharing items from my own collection. I recently started a 4 part series about a time 10 years ago I purchased a ridiculous amount of vinyl for a song. A few peculiarities, a few keepers, and lots and lots of crap! Likes and comments always welcome! Thanks for stopping by - Kendo
