Radio Recommendation

If you are out and about today or at home doing projects or just hanging out and have the ability to stream radio, my recommendation is checking out WWOZ starting at 7:00 AM for Traditional Jazz With Michael Longfield

Following Michael at 9:00 AM is three hours of great r&b jazz rock funk zydeco/cajun music with the New Orleans Music Show With Missy Bowen

Following Missy at noon is 2 hours of power house blues with Sittin’ At The Crossroad With Big D

Following Big D at 2:00 PM is 3 hours of great jazz programming with Jazz From The French Market With Sondra Bibb

Following Sondra at 5:00 PM is one of my favorite programs R&B Oldies With Rare On The Air hosted by Bob Murret, 3 hours of 50’s and 60’s swamp, rock’n’roll, r&b, soul and more…

After Rare on the Air turn the radio dial over to 94.1 KPFA at 8:00 PM for Dead To The World Hosted By Tim Lynch who is keeping the spirit and music of the Grateful Dead alive with music by the Grateful Dead, and music not by the Grateful Dead

Video Pick For The Week

Maybelle Carter was the matriarch of country music whose influence and impact on the “hillbilly music” of the ’20s and ’30s, bluegrass music, ’60s folk music, and even the modern country music of today is imeasureable. She was a standout guitarist credited with creating the Carter Scratch, a widely-used guitar playing style where one plays a melody on the bass strings while strumming rhythm on the treble strings. In celebration of Mother Maybelle’s 111th birthday on Monday I would like to recommend the 2014 documentary The Winding Stream which tells the story of Maybelle and the Carter Family American roots music dynasty which is at the very heart of country music.
