While I had a music-free childhood, as a teen of the 60s, I was an avid listener, with a small reel-to-reel tape recorder with mixed-from-radio rock and pop under the seat of my post-war Ford. But then, our kids learned music from a jazz pianist, and pursued tenor sax, jazz bass and baritone sax. What does that say about frustrated musicians! My career taught me that we are all story tellers, and that’s what drives my radio programming. And that while jazz has its roots, it’s the 21st century, and Jazz lives. So, it’s now, and keep that foot tapping.
