KBOO's Power is out

10/25 6:30 pm - KBOO, along with thousands of other Portlanders, is currently experiencing a power outage.  We are in touch with PGE and will be back on the air as soon as possible!

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)

Dick Berk Special - Part I - Jazz Adoption Agency

Renowned jazz drummer and long-time Portland resident Dick Berk

will be featured and honored today during KBOO's 45th anniversary

Spring Membership Drive.  Dick's discography is too extensive

to cover in one show, so today we'll showcase Dick's many years

of wonderfully swinging music leading his Jazz Adoption Agency.

Dick is ailing and can't be with us in person today.

We ask you to send a get-well card to Dick in care of Bob Riddle, KBOO-FM,

20 SE 8th ave., Portland, OR 97214.  We aim to get him well

to hear his voice for Part II of Dick Berk's specials -

featuring his music with Billie Holiday from the first 1958 Monterey Jazz Festival,

his years with Cal Tjader and much more - planned for his birthday, May 22.

Chuck Israels Guests; Celebration of a Musical Life: Sonny Russo

Chuck Israels will be my guest at 2 p.m. for a musical showcase

of both his years as bassist with the Bill Evans Trio,

and his present Chuck Israels Jazz Orchestra.

 

A memorial to the rich life of trombonist Sonny Russo will follow

with a partial re-broadcast of Sonny's 83rd birthday celebration

first broadcast on KBOO in March 2012.  Sonny's hand-picked music

will illustrate why Sonny's favorite expression was "It's a bone world!".

 

With regards,

Bob Riddle
