Fulton County is your government at your service. This month on Fulton Focus we discuss the new Aviation Community Cultural Center, opening at Charlie Brown Airport June 19, after a delay. We're joined by Director Robin Williams to discuss it. What's required in order to vote in elections in Fulton County? Ericka Davis has the basics. And Malcom Saunders with Fulton County Environmental Health Services has the do's and don'ts of Summertime pool safety.

Ahmad Jamal makes a much-anticipated return to Atlanta headlining the 2014 Jazz Festival in Piedmont Park Sunday night, May 25. His most recent release Saturday Morning shows him to be as relevant, rhythmic and melodic as ever over the course of a career that goes back five decades.
Jamal spoke with Jay Edwards on Jazz Tones Saturday afternoon to catch up with Atlanta and talk about his upcoming Memorial Day Weekend performance.
Jay's biographical notes on Ahmad Jamal go as follows:
CAU's Peter Molnar, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Clark Atlanta University Department of Computer and Information Science, who last week was among a select group of industry leaders chosen to deliver keynote addresses at the Atlanta branch of the "Big Data Week" global conference.
Thanks to everyone who joined us at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre for our 40th Anniversary Gala Event and also the George Benson concert that took place afterwards.

Jamal Ahmad is your emcee as Atlanta's High Museum of Art welcomes keyboardist Louis Herriveaux for the May edition of Friday Jazz At The High, May 16 from 5p until 10p. Admission to Friday Jazz is free with your admission to the museum. You can beat the traffic, take in the High's latest exhibits, including the last week of Abelardo Morell: The Universe Next Door, and dig jazz music from Louis Herriveaux. We don't think there is a better way to spend a Friday evening.
Louis Herriveaux and High Museum's Jessica Joris stopped by WCLK to talk about it with Jamal:
The Black Women's Agenda Inc., in partnership with AARP, will host the Because We Care Forum on Saturday, May 17 at the Greater Smith Chapel A.M.E. Church at 183 Mayson Ave, NE Atlanta GA 30307.
This event is designed to provide resources to caregivers, and will take place from 9a until 1p on Saturday. It will feature health, financial and legal experts sharing caregiving resources. The event will also focus on how families can prepare for caregiving, when the time arises.
WCLK PD and Serenade To The City Host Aaron Cohen is adding the debut record from Letizia Gambi. Introducing Letizia Gambi is produced by Lenny White and features a who's who of Jazz greats, including Gato Barbieri, Ron Carter, Chick Corea, Gil Goldstein, Wallace Roney, Patrice Rushen, and White.
"Lenny White and Letizia Gambi have created the hippest musical address in Naples; at the intersection of Neapolitan music and jazz."
