What’s On The Airwaves

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!!

To celebrate would have been Johnny Cash’s 88 years old this week I want to recommend a new documentary on him The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash which strips away the mythos of country musician Johnny Cash to reveal his tragedies and struggles. Archival footage provided by the Cash estate as well as interviews with his family, friends and artistic collaborators paint a portrait of the real man. Bruce Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, Dwight Yoakam and more reflect on his legacy.
