Jazz In The Afternoon


My guest on March 18 will be renowned trombonist Sonny Russo,who has retired to the Portland area after his 60-year career.

Sonny will bring his own music and his inimitable stories!

We'll touch, musically, also on Dave Frishberg's 76th birthday coming up March 23, and Nat "King" Cole's 90th,which he would have celebrated this year on St. Patrick's Day.

Last week (3/4) we celebrated Dave Frishberg's 76th, early, but in style with our "Baseball and Jazz" feature. 

Thanks for all your warm calls; because of them, this show will be a spring-training annual!

Looking ahead to our following show,  on April Fool's Day, the subject from 2 to 3 p.m. will be humor.

Included, among others, will be Spike Jones, Tom Waits, Slim Gaillard,  Eddie Lawrence -

no turn will be left unstoned!


Thanks to you for listening.  Please don't forget to tune in KBOO's other excellent jazz hosts:  Nick Gefroh,   Dave Lifton, and Yugen Rashad.

You'll be glad you did.

with regards,

Bob Riddle
