Morning Jazz

Jazz 91.9 WCLK celebrates 42 years as Atlanta's Jazz station.   As a National Public Radio affiliate station , we rely heavily on the donations of our listeners to meet our annual operating budget.   As 2016 draws to a close, we find ourselves just shy of goal and need that final wind of donations to help push us over the finish line.

Incognito featuring Maysa, along with Deborah Bond, stopped by Morning Jazz today to talk about their performance tonight at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. We also touched on the music business, the creative process, and Bluey's tips for getting work done in the studio. Tickets are still available for tonight's performance.

I support First Tee Atlanta, whose mission is to positively impact the lives of Atlanta's young people by providing educational programs that build character, instill life enhancing values, and promote healthy choices through the game of golf.  Thanks to everyone who came and said hello at John A. White Golf Course on their annual Community Day benefiting First Tee Atlanta on Saturday, August 20.   Great time, great weather, great cause and I played in the golf skills challenge and got in a round, too.  For more information about First Tee Atlanta and John A. White Golf Course, click here.

Congratulations to Vaughn Thomas of Harmony Entertainment, the winner of the Jazz 91.9 WCLK Signature Serenade silver cup for raising the most money for the station during his stint as host on Signature Serenade during our Summer Jazz-a-thon. In June, Thomas played his favorite Jazz cuts and sat in with Debb Moore for an evening devoted to great music and raising money to keep his favorite Jazz public radio station alive.
