KC Jazz In SD CA
Do you miss Dick Wright's show on KANU? How about KCUR's beloved Just Jazz? Similar mainstream jazz programming still exists- in San Diego! While vacationing in Southern California last week, I heard Jay McShann, Count Basie, Lester Young and other practitioners of the Kansas City sound on KSDS. According to today's playlist, Illinois Jacquet, Cal Tjader, Mark Murphy and Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis have aired in the past hour. The "full-time mainstream/traditional jazz" station streams online. To add insult to injury, San Diego is also home to a smooth jazz station.
