Ok another chance to play music for the holidays. I have fallen DEEPLY in love with old Dixieland, and old New Orleans Jazz music in the past year. Musicians most folks are not aware of...Sure we have heard of Louis Armstrong and Duke Ellington ..but I am going to play music from Armstrong's mentor and one of the BIGGEST influences in jazz, Joe "King" Oliver. His Creole Jazz band is very old stuff but fantastic! This show will be a little history of the music and musicians on this CD. As most folks reflect on their year, I am choosing to learn more about the music I have been exposed to in the last year. But don't worry, show will be MOSTLY MUSIC. Only 30 minutes, no more than 5 minutes of talking. Tell your Jazz friends or young musicians to listen. Great slide show of folks playing on this song.

All Music Night.

Might open with a modern Christmas tune, but the rest will be classical music..Smetana's the Moldau for one, and some Chopin. So if you are tired of Christmas music, this is the place to listen. Hope you enjoy the selections.

Monday night the 15th.

Whatever is on my mind, in the goofy news, some tunes, might be jazzy Christmas stuff, might be something else. Then again, my show is always something else! :) May or may not play more tunes than normal....just depends on my mood. But I am sure I will find something to whine about to open the show. Oh, and I can't forget my M&M's story. Tune in, same time, same station.

More dumb stuff in the news, stupid Christmas presents, some Vince Guaraldi tunes from Charlie Brown Christmas CD. Jazzy, happy Christmas songs...not sad, sentimental stuff.

Monday: It's time for quirky news and minutia.

Remember when toys meant USING your imagination? Check out this site for classic toys and a blast from the past.

Remember toys that did not live up to commercials or those that did? The slinky or Easy Bake Oven? Offbeat news, worm surgery, and other minutia, I promise!. And some tunes. New time 10pm EST. Just thirty minutes so not a major time commitment. Have some Thanksgiving leftover stories? If it’s Monday, there’s always time for minutia. Give me a call.
