Jazz in the Afternoon

Every other Wednesday, alternating with David Lifton's "A Jazz World".

Bob Riddle is continuing the 25-year KBOO tradition established by the late Jim Andrews, in Jim's spirit:  the very best in jazz music, from the historical to the present. 

A jazz artist or musical theme is showcased from 2 to 3 p.m.  Our wealth of Portland-area-resident musicians is our focus from 3 to 4 p.m with "Jazz Current Events" Jazz Calendar.

Pacific Northwest jazz artists are encouraged to send their recordings to Bob for airplay. Contact:   bruin13@comcast.net      (NOTE e-mail address change eff Feb. 2010)

Rita Rega

Rita Rega

A familiar voice to Northwest jazz fans, Rita comes to us by way of KRAB, KMUN, KKSN, KCNR, KKUL and KMHD. A lover of mainstream jazz, don't be surprised if she takes you down a tributary or two. It's always a voyage of discovery with Rita at the helm.

Jazz To Be Thankful For

Today is a special day to be thankful,

and November gives us specific reasons to be so.

Jazz In The Afternoon today will bring a small sample of jazz -

and its people -

that I am especially thankful for; some we haven't heard for a while,

and at least one KBOO debut:  "The Gathering" by the Clayton Brothers

to highlight their Portland performance tomorrow night.

  See you on the radio at 2:00.

With regards,

Bob Riddle
