Radio Recommendations For Today Are As Follows!

If you are out and about today or at home doing projects or just hanging out and have the radio on or able to stream this is my recommendation for great music programming throughout the day and evening. I recommend starting the morning off at 6:30 AM streaming WWOZ for The Gospel Show With Lauren Mastro

Following Lauren at 8:00 AM is Old Time Country And Bluegrass With Hazel The Delta Rambler. Hazel has been hosting this great program since 1977 with music and interviews with old-time country, folk and bluegrass musicians.

Following The Delta Rambler at 10 AM is Cajun And Zydeco With Charles Laborde Or Jim Hobbs

I then suggest at 11:00 AM turning on your radio and tuning the dial or streaming over to 94.1 KPFA for six hours of great music programming starting at 11:00 AM with Across The Great Divide Hosted By Kevin Vance a program of folk, rock, blues and acoustic music.

Following Kevin at 1:00 PM is without question the best Americana music show this side of the Milky Way Americas Back Forty hosted by the truly wonderful and Bay Area treasure Mary Tilson

Following Mary from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM you will hear either Panhandle Country Hosted By Tom Diamont or Pig In A Pen Hosted BY Ray Edlund. Both programs feature some of the best traditional country, bluegrass, cajun, western swing, old time string band and country jazz.

I then suggest at 4:00 PM to resume streaming WWOZ for two hours of great big band swing and early jazz with Hep Cat’s Ball With The Minister Of Swing

Following Hep Cat’s Ball at 6:00 PM on check out WWOZ for two hours of Reggae, African, Afro-Beat, Jazz, Hip-Hop, World and Orisha Music with Spirits Of Congo Square With Baba Geno

Following Baba Geno starting at 8:00 PM is two hours of great music covering contemporary blues, r&b and New Orleans music on What’s New With Duane Williams

Following Duane at 10:00 PM is 3 hours of great contemporary jazz with The Dean’s List With Dean Ellis

Video Pick Of The Week!

Dizzy Gillespies effect on jazz cannot be overstated. His trumpet playing influenced every player who came after him, his compositions have become part of the jazz canon, and his bands have included some of the most significant names in the business. He was also, along with Charlie Parker, one of the major leaders of the bebop movement. In celebration of Diz’s 103rd birthday on Wednesday, I would like to recommend the documentary Dizzy Gillespie 1990 which simply features Diz in interviews, concert performances and archival footage. The result is a surprising film without guardrails for that showcases the exceptionalism of Gillespie—his musicianship, his humor and his modernist invention called bebop.
