Rosalind, here. It’s August, and for most of us, we’re enjoying these last days of summer. As you get in time by the pool or visiting your favorite state park, remember the solar eclipse on August 21st. It’s the first time a solar eclipse is visible to the entire United States in over a hundred years. Here in downtown St. Louis, I’ll be watching the eclipse from the steps in front of our Central Library 11:00am – 2:00pm, with my family. I can’t wait….
One of the things I really like about the ReedRADIO.com blog is that I get to share some of my favorite lists of things with you. You’ll find I’m BIG on lists because…well, they’re fun.
There are so many great Podcasts about Jazz music on the Internet, and I listen to many of them. I thought it would be fun to list what I consider to be the Top 3 Best “Talk Radio” Podcasts About Jazz. All of them are on iTunes, but I also list their websites. I wanted to share these Podcasts with you because the hosts, and their guests, actually talk about the music and the artists. They know Jazz, and can provide insight and stories, and ask the questions we are all interested in hearing the answers. It’s storytelling at its best.
In no particular order, I’m sharing:
NPR Jazz Profiles Hosted by Nancy Wilson
Talking Smooth Jazz
Make it a great week!
