If you're tuning in every Sunday, then you'll know that I'm still running the show and am now entering into the summer program. Just wanted to update with some things.


My summer slot is running the same time on Sundays at 6 PM, but now I'll be broadcasting 3, that's right THREE hours of 1920's Jazz, 30's Swing and 40's Bebop (along with a stew of other genres) music for you all! Exciting, yes?


This update concerns the lack of updates. Obviously it's been a while since I've put up the playlists and that's because I'm currently working on transferring the blog to another platform. Once I do have that up, you can see it updated with the songs that I've played since May.

So that's it! Thanks as always for listening! You can tune in tomorrow for my show on KUCI 88.9 FM Irvine or listen in through these streams.
