Where you came from genetically can help predict and pre-empt cancer. New genetic therapies are making a critical difference to some people who are fighting cancer.

Sunday, November 13 at 3:00 p.m. on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK,  I will feature the music of George Cables.  In the 1970's and 1980's George Cables was the pianist of choice for Saxophonists Dexter Gordon and Art Pepper. Cables also recorded with Jazz stars Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard, Bobby Hutcherson and Frank Morgan. He has absorbed a variety of styles, sounds and rhythms and incorporated them into his performances. At 18, Cables formed the Jazz Samaritans with Steve Grossman and Billy Cobham.

Spivey Hall, a proud supporter of Jazz 91.9 WCLK, presents Jazz Pianist, Christian Sands on Saturday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m.  Sands will perform with Dezron Douglas on bass and Marcus Baylor on drums. Sands has worked with Oscar Peterson, Dr. Billy Taylor and Christian McBride, among others.  Spivey Hall is located on the campus of Clayton State University in Morrow, GA  just 10 minutes south of the Perimeter off of I-75.  This event will be hosted by WCLK's Mark Angel.

The week of November 14 - 18 is American Education week. Saturday on The Local Take on WCLK I spoke with Dr. Moses Norman, Dean of the Clark Atlanta University School of Education about this event. 

This week The Local Take speaks with Stepp Stewart about his upcoming holiday play and the Georgia Independent Playwright Coalition. 

Stepp Stewart has been bringing his brand of Broadway to Atlanta for five years. A Soulful Christmas, a holiday family favorite and staple of the holiday season returns to the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center with performances from December 1-4.

WCLK congratulates Winifred Watts Hemphill—among the newest inductees into the Atlanta Business League Hall of Fame. A graduate of Howard University Law School, this great grand-daughter of a former Georgia slave is president of South-View Cemetery. The cemetery was developed on a 25 acre property her grandfather and four other freedmen purchased in 1886. This historic cemetery now sits on 100 acres and is the final resting place for Rev.

Legendary Vocalist, Patti Austin called in to the SOUL of Jazz and I have to say, it was one of the most refreshing interviews I've done in my 21 years in radio.  She was so humble, funny and graceful.   Atlanta, you got to see her live on 11/17 at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre along with Spyro Gyra at the Jazz 91.9 WCLK Benefit Concert. It's like seeing one of your favorite stand-up comedians, who also just so happens to sing. Think Eddie Murphy in reverse.

The Local Take speaks with Harold Franklin the regional vice chair of The Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law about their national program Election Protection

Mr. Franklin shares with  listeners what they should do if they are challenged at the polls. He explains the steps for using a provisional ballot and how to get a ride to the polls

Jazz 91.9 WCLK has been playing Lindsey Webster's music as long as she's been putting records out. When she plays in Atlanta she always stops by the station to catch up. The Woodstock, New York native is a singer and lyricist whose style has been compared to Sade, Swing Out Sister's Corinne Drewery and Carole King, among others. Back To Your Heart, her debut record on Shanachie, was funded by close to 200 people  via Kickstarter. Good work, Lindsey. We knew you when.
