Saturday morning at 7am on The Local Take On WCLK, the Atlanta Fulton Public Library System stopped by to let the community know about National Library Sign up Month. 

I speak with Public Relations and Marketing Manager Claudia Strange about National Library Sign Up Month. She shares with listeners what they will need to receive a library card and all of the things beyond books that you can do with a the card.  From renting movies to receiving parking passes for Georgia State Parks or family tickets to Zoo Atlanta all you need is an Atlanta Fulton Public Library card.

Sunday, September 10 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Jazz Tones on Jazz 91.9 WCLK,  I will be joined by Jazz Vocalist Carmen Bradford.  Bradford was born  in Texas and raised in Altadena, Californa.  She grew up with music in her home and in her heart. It was only natural that she would follow in the footsteps of her great family legacy, being the daughter of legendary Drummer-Composer Bobby Bradford and world renowned Vocalist-Composer Melba Joyce. Carmen was discovered and hired by William Count Basie and was the featured vocalist in the legendary Count Basie Orchestra for nine years.
