Do you remember guitarist Johnny Smith? Please join Blue Lake Public Radio in appreciation of the musician who elevated the skill level played on the instrument while remaining a story teller with a listenable sound, and lovely chord-melody arrangements.

 ""The hardest thing to do on the guitar is to play a melodic chord progression in smooth, even fashion without leaving space between chords," he told the Colorado Springs Independent. "Then one day I noticed how an organist managed to keep a tone going between chords by holding down one of the notes of the chord while he pivoted to the next chord. I picked up on that and applied it to chord progressions on the guitar.""

Jazz From Blue Lake is the name of the program, and it turns over every day, so it's under "Daily Shows." Since Johnny Smith we've done programs on Reggie Workman, Madeline Eastman and Tierney Sutton, with Friday night's program featuring Julian Priester. The program airs from 10 p.m. to 3 a.m. eastern so the on-demand is for day people checking out  Jazz From Blue Lake. But, it's radio, so it goes away.
