KPLU Jazz Cruise http://kplu.org en Revisiting The Sunny Side Of The Street http://kplu.org/post/revisiting-sunny-side-street <p>I got my start in public/community radio at WFBE in Flint, Michigan in the late 1970s. I talked my way into being the self-appointed assistant, apprentice and substitute for a Thursday night program called John's Jazz.</p><p>The show was hosted by John R. Davis, journalist and unmatched jazz enthusiast. He very kindly let me tag along and learn things about music and radio.</p><p>John’s Jazz theme song was "On The Sunny Side Of The Street<i>"</i>&nbsp;featuring Johnny Hodges on sax.</p> Wed, 04 Jun 2014 17:00:00 +0000 Robin Lloyd 16739 at http://kplu.org Revisiting The Sunny Side Of The Street Join Us For KPLU's 2014 Summer Jazz Brunch Cruise! http://kplu.org/post/join-us-kplus-2014-summer-jazz-brunch-cruise-0 <p>Get more information and purchase your tickets <a href="http://www.kplu.org/join-us-kplus-2014-summer-jazz-brunch-cruise">here</a>!</p><p></p> Mon, 02 Jun 2014 12:00:00 +0000 Brenda Goldstein-Young 16866 at http://kplu.org Join Us For KPLU's 2014 Summer Jazz Brunch Cruise!
