More Percy France Radio Coming Up!

Recommended Posts

Very happy to announce that writer/poet/Professor Sascha Feinstein is dedicating an hour on his Jazz Standards radio program on WVIA - Williamsport to Percy France. I "met" Sascha online via one of my many Percy France google searches.  His first memoir, Black Pearls, was excerpted somewhere online, the excerpt being about his many teen-aged visits to The West End, often hearing Percy France, and even getting a chance to play a tune with Percy and Sammy Price. Sascha graciously provided a great remembrance for the site:


(And talk about a small world, he and our own GoM, David Brent Johnson, are friends since the 1990s when both were in Indianapolis.)

Now his radio show will bring Percy France further out of the shadows, streaming on March 26 at 9 pm and again September 17.

UP, to remind people to tune in at 9 pm TONIGHT for Sascha Feinstein's Jazz Standards, originating from WVIA and covering the career of Percy France.  I recently became aware that three tunes on the playlist originate from Allen Lowe's archives and are heard by the general public for the very first time.
