World of Jazz – 1st March 2012

Well chuffed that I have reached 700 followers on Mixcloud and that last weeks show hit 447 listens at the time of writing. Interesting that the more traditional end of the jazz market (1950s, 1960s Bop and Hard Bop) are the most popular programmes – although any plays of Miles or Trane tend to pull in the listeners. Anyway this week is another mixed bag mostly concentrating on later years….. click here to listen

Music Diary #26 – 26th January 2012 – World of Jazz Radio Show

As I shall be spending most of the day running around like a mad person and will be out when the show goes out – yes I can be in two places at the same time there is not a great deal to report as I have been otherwise engaged in preparation for the first Salford City Radio Music Night at the Kings Arms, Salford.

So the line up for this weeks jazz show revolves around a tribute to Etta James……with a bit of support from Dionne and Aretha doing Burt Bacharach and in between some classic jazz cuts…..listen in here
