Radio Recommendations

If you are at work, out and about today or at home and are able to stream I highly suggest checking out WWOZ starting at 7:00 AM with a great two hours of music with Traditional Jazz With Dan Meyer

Following Dan at 9:00 PM is a great program of 3 hours of great music with The New Orleans Music Show With Murf Reeves

Following Murf at noon is a wonderful blues program with Blues Eclectic With Andrew Gaffe.

Following Andrew at 2:00 PM is one of my very favorite jazz programs on the air Jazz From The French Market With Maryse DeJean.

Following Maryse at 5:00 PM is three hours of incredible r&b, blues and early rock & roll music with Blues & R&B with Gentilly Jr.. This show is must listening.

At 8:30 PM I strongly suggest spinning the radio dial to KPOO 89.5 for Grinders Grooveyard hosted by Jim Rigsbee. For more than 40 years, Rockin’ Jim has been hosting Grinders Grooveyard, a late-night program consisting of pop and rock hits from the 1950s and ’60s. This is a great radio program.

Video Pick Of The Week!!

Louis Armstrong was unquestionably the most important and influential musician of the 20th century as well as one of its most cultural icons. In honor of his 119th birthday on Tuesday I would like to recommend a documentary that I really like Louis Armstrong-Satchmo. This is a comprehensive documentary 87-minute documentary that pieces together the life of Satchmo using never-before-seen homemade films, clips from stage shows, and excerpts from some of his movies like Hello, Dolly, Atlantic City, and High Society. And, of course, there are many of Armstrong’s songs featured, including “West End Blues,” “Potato Head Blues,” “Weather Bird,” “On the Sunny Side of the Street,” “When You’re Smiling,” “Mack the Knife,” and many more. This colorful documentary also includes commentaries from many of Armstrong’s contemporaries and musicians influenced by his music, including Dexter Gordon, Tony Bennett, and Wynton Marsalis.
