Timeless Jazz Returns to WUTC-FM

8 posts in this topic

I hosted Timeless Jazz out of my collection on WUTC-FM betwen 1987 and 2002 and it returned to the station beginning February 3. It airs on WUTC.org (88.1 FM in greater Chattanooga Sundays from 2 to 4 pm ET, the HD-2 broadcast can be heard on Wednesdays from 10 am to 12 noon). The program won't always have a specific topic, though for Sunday, Feburary 17, I will be focusing on Japanese CDs exclusively. No podcasts as yet, but we are working on that.

I decided that it was silly to be the only one enjoying portions of a collecton accumulated over 45+ years. 

I will likely include some interviews, some of which were previously aired but with different music, others have never been broadcast. I plan to tape new interviews as well.

I hope you'll tune in to the show.

That is great news, Ken! Thanks for the heads-up.

This Sunday's broadcast celebrates the centennial of Nat King Cole's birth (March 17, 1919) with a survey of his career between 1939 and 1956. Obviously a lot of the music came from the 18 CD Mosaic boxed set The Complete Capitol Recordings of the Nat King Cole Trio, but I also included transcriptions, broadcasts, previously unissued live recordings that have appeared in the last 20 or so years. With so many brief songs, the sets consist mostly of 4 to 5 songs. It airs from 3 to 5 pm EDT at wutc.org or on the station's HD-2 channel from 10 am to 12 noon the following Wednesday.

I thought about doing a 101st birthday tribute to Marian McPartland last Sunday, but I had just devoted an entire program to Nat King Cole. No matter, this Sunday's show and possibly the following week, will be devoted to her music. I may include excerpts from one or two of the several interviews I did with her in the second show, the earliest one being in 1988.

Also in the works is a show on Denny Zeitlin, with an air date in late April. He is appearing at Mezzrow May 1-4. I am interviewing him later today.
