Jazz In The Afternoon


I'll be sitting in for Dave Lifton on "A Jazz World" WED 6/30 2-4 p.m.

showcasing the music of the 28 years of the

Mt. Hood Jazz Festival.  This festival may not be held this year

due lack of sponsorship.  Listen today to some of the finest

jazz musicians presented over the years at Mt. Hood - a great many

still presenting exciting music - and hopefully agree that this festival

should not be allowed to die.

with regards,

Bob Riddle


Jazz In The Afternoon


Pianist, Vibraphonist, and founder of Tall Jazz,

Mike Horsfall, will be our guest at 3:15.


Prior, we'll have an update of what's happening

right now in jazz, both with "old timers"

and the young lions, beginning with

the recent San Francisco Kurt Elling/Basie band concert.

Jazz In The Afternoon


It's Baseball, Jazz, and more, today,

as spring training winds down

and the season begins Easter sunday night.


Dropping by will be the king of baseball lore

set to music, Portland's own Dave Frishberg.


Hope you enjoy!

regards to all,

Jazz In The Afternoon


My guest on March 18 will be renowned trombonist Sonny Russo,who has retired to the Portland area after his 60-year career.

Sonny will bring his own music and his inimitable stories!

We'll touch, musically, also on Dave Frishberg's 76th birthday coming up March 23, and Nat "King" Cole's 90th,which he would have celebrated this year on St. Patrick's Day.

Last week (3/4) we celebrated Dave Frishberg's 76th, early, but in style with our "Baseball and Jazz" feature. 

Thanks for all your warm calls; because of them, this show will be a spring-training annual!

Looking ahead to our following show,  on April Fool's Day, the subject from 2 to 3 p.m. will be humor.
