Holiday Music on WCLK: Vincent Ingala-Christmas

1 hour ago

WCLK listeners know Vincent Ingala from his local performances and hearing his music on the station at various times. He's a multi-instrumentalist and a contemporary Jazz mainstay. We're playing Christmas songs from his recent release of the same name via CD Baby, including My Favorite Things.

Saturday on The Local Take I spoke with Charles Walker of the Urban League of Greater Atlanta about YouthBuild. Mr. Walker explains that this program began in New York when young men were asked what they wanted to do in their neighborhoods. The program is designed for young people between the ages of 16 and 24 who are interested in a career in the construction trades.

On the December 9 edition of The Local Take, I spoke with  with Clark Atlanta University Political Science Professor Dr. William Boone about the Atlanta Mayoral runoff that happened last week.   Keisha Lance Bottoms won the vote over her opponent Mary Norwood by fewer than 800 votes.   Although there has been a call for a recount, Dr. Boone expects the mayor-elect to be installed as Mayor of Atlanta.   I asked Dr. Boone about the schism with Atlanta's old guard and new.  We also discussed Atlanta's changing demographics and the future of African American leadership in the city.

Jazz 91.9 WCLK Holiday Jazz features new music from Joe Gransden and his 16 Piece Big Band, covering many of your timeless Christmas classics in the mode of Cole, Sinatra, or Harry Connick, Jr.. 

Joe is a friend of WCLK and he's playing these songs live in Atlanta throughout the holiday period.   You can find out more about that here.
