Jazz part 2 -- Women Jazz Singers! -- Back-to-back shows with Don Shor (2/15/18)

Back from last week, Don Shor continues his sharing of Jazz with post-WWII changes and the rising to prominence of women jazz singers -- in particular Ella Fitgerald, Billie Holiday, Lena Horne, and Sara Vaughn.  This show has lots MORE music and far less talk.

Lois' "That's Life" Jazz segments: 1 Feb 2018 and 8 Feb 2018

Don Shor's "Jazz After Dark" show: weekly on Tuesdays from 8:00-9:00 pm; repeats on Mondays from 11 to midnight.

 

Jazz part 1 -- From the Beginning, with Don Shor (2/8/18)

Back-toback shows with Don Shor about JAZZ!  Not the apple -- that would be on the "Davis Garden Show" (where Don and Lois are co-hosts) -- but the music.  Don hosts a weekly KDRT radio show on Tuesday evenings called "Jazz After Dark" and agreed to come today to share with us some of the history of jazz -- up to about WWII  So sit back and listen to the man and the music.

PS: This was so wonderful, Lois asked him to come back next week and do another show focusing on women jazz artists.

Yolo County Landfill's 'Big Blue Barn' (01/11/18)

The Yolo County Landfill has many programs to reduce-reuse-recycle and one of the newest is the 'Big Blue Barn'. Manager explains how diverting use-able items that would otherwise go into the landfill not only saves us space; it also makes things available for VERY low prices AND provides funding for other recycling programs.  Every other month there is one weekend when folks can buy; but EVERY day one can drop things off. Here the details in this lively interview.

Alison Borkowska returns!

Former KDRT host Alison Borkowska has returned to California!  She is helping out at the station (for KDRT, DCTV, and DMA) as well as ...
