Jazz In The Afternoon


Many thanks to you - members, listeners, and friends,

for your enthusiastic response to our Four Freshmen

special during the Fall drive.  Count on Part II during

the 2010 Fall Drive.


The 10/28 show will be a Mose Allison special (2-3 pm)

co-hosted by KBOO alum Denny (The Lo-Ryder) Hays.


Our Veteran's Day show 11/11 will have Art Abrams -

the leader of the Swing Machine Big Band - as my guest

to showcase Chet Baker.  Art may be the most knowdgeable

Chet Baker fan alive today.


Our Thanksgiving Eve show 11/25 will be

"Jazz to be Thankful For".  During our regular

"Jazz Current Events" feature from 3 to 4 pm,

I'm inviting Ron Steen to be my guest,

to tell jazz stories and play his music.


 Ron has been a major contributor to Portland's

vibrant jazz scene for over 40 years.

If there's anyone who's done more for jazz

in Portland, I've never met him.


Christmas Eve eve (12/23) will be our Christmas Jazz

special.  Expect old favorites, and at least something

wonderful you've never heard before. 

I'm inviting blues guru John Fletcher to be my guest.

John was the co-founder, in 1989, of the still-running

radio show "the Blues Palace".  He then did a

most memorable 4-hour Christmas Blues special.


with thanks and regards,

Bob Riddle
