It’s the one-year anniversary of Jazz After Dark on 95.7 FM KDRT! Since the first show aired on October 26 2010 I have played 757 songs. Thanks to my increasing mania for collecting jazz, I’ve only repeated a couple of dozen pieces in that time. So tonight’s show features some ‘greatest hits’ from the past year.
