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.
