Atlanta's own Rhonda Thomas can be heard throughout the year on WCLK, but we love to play her Christmas music. You can hear her duet with Alex Lattimore, a cover of the soul classic Baby, It's Cold Outside during the holiday season on Atlanta's Jazz Station. That cut comes from her Christmas album Little Drummer Girl
JaQuitta Williams discussed diet and cancer during our monthly look at cancer-related health issues on Your Health Connection. Our informative guest was Registered Dietician Marisa Moore.
Does what you eat make it more likely you will get cancer? Can you choose to eat in ways that minimize certain cancers? What about diet when you are a cancer survivor? We'll take your calls and tweets live as we talk about an issue that is relevant to everyone who eats.

The Jazz Institute of Chicago and the city's Park District teamed up in December 2012 to present this free family concert with Dee Alexander. As we air it on JazzSet a year later, Alexander is just back from performing the show in Poland where, she writes, "everyone was on their feet."
Kiplyn Primus is joined on a special holiday edition of The Local Take by dancer, producer and choreographer Stepp Stewart to talk about Stewart's presentation of "A Soulful Christmas". The production is a heart-warming musical illuminating the magic of the holiday season. It features soulful Christmas songs and Broadway-style choreography. It's an African-American tale that is fun and exciting for all families.
The production features the Chocolettes Dance Troup.
