For the second year,Jazz 91.9 WCLK in partnership with the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, encourages individuals to join in on creating personal care packages for Atlanta area homeless women and children during the 2013 United Way Shoebox Project.
Victor Goines is one of Jazz music's most acclaimed and prolific horn players, his work appearing from Lincoln Center to Hollywood soundtracks. He stopped by The Midday Jazz Swing with Gary Motley, who appeared with him at the Emory University Schwartz Center Friday night. They chatted with Nicole Sweeney and caught WCLK listeners up with what they'll be doing at their performance.
Atlanta is a second home for Goines, and tonight's jam session should delight and challenge the serious jazz fans in attendance.
News that jazz-fusion legend Donald Byrd had passed went through the media with a shiver yesterday, with record labels confirming by late afternoon that Byrd was gone. Jazz 91.9 WCLK plays Donald Byrd, always has. You can expect to hear Donald Byrd closely in the days ahead on the station. His memory will live forever on The Jazz of The City.
Jesse Fischer and Soul Cycle have become an Atlanta favorite in recent years.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK - The Jazz of the City - 2013 Spring Membership Campaign takes place on Wednesday, March 13 through Sunday, March 24 with a lot of anticipation and excitement. The membership campaign theme is “Jazz all over, stronger than ever,” which follows WCLK’s recent coverage area increase last Fall. It has reenergized a community of Jazz lovers – some who are now receiving a clearer, stronger signal in their offices, homes and cars and, others who are discovering WCLK for the first time due to its extended reach.
Toni Love is an author, educator and hair loss specialist. Join her Saturday, February 2 at 7am on WCLK for a look at the factors causing hair loss, and the proper approach to this condition from both the client and the stylist perspective.
Toni is joined by both a hair stylist trained to treat hair loss, and a client suffering from hair loss, for a frank discussion about what to do and what not to do. Should you use hair extensions? At what point do you need to treat your hair loss as a medical, rather than an personal appearance issue?
