WCLK Remembers One of Our Own--Bobby Jackson

Dec 10, 2013

WCLK mourns the passing of our former Program Director Bobby Jackson, the host of The Roots of Smooth.  Jackson wrote, broadcast, lectured and otherwise promoted jazz constantly during his too-short lifetime.  WCLK listeners regularly hear Bobby’s voice on Sunday afternoons from 3-4pm on Atlanta’s Jazz Station.   We will bring you more information about the future direction of that show as we learn it.  In the meanwhile our prayers and good wishes go to his family and loved ones.  Jazz in heaven just gained a great emcee.
