Charlie Haden 1937-2014
Blog Name: Home Page NewsAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: July 11, 2014
A Jazz Great of the Modern Era has passed away. Bassist Charlie Haden was musical before he could walk and his influence is like a major branch of the Jazz Tree. He always created on the highest level, and he is remembered as a warm and giving individual. There will be much written about him in the coming days. Take a minute and read or hear something by/about/for Charlie Haden and just kind of dig that quietly.

Jazz 88.3 has a heavy heart for losing another icon in jazz this past week - pianist Marion McPartland. NPR noted her for her individualistic voice in her compositions and the New York Times highlighted her formidable success as a jazz musician in late 1940s and 1950s as a woman, additionally also as a spokeswoman for the music. NPR honors her with some of her compositions, as featured in her longtime radio show on public radio, Marian McPartland's Piano Jazz

Joe Marillo Interview on Offramp with T. Michael Crowell
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 19, 2012

Joe Marillo has been a force in the San Diego jazz scene since the mid-1970s when he began bringing top-name jazz musicians to Mission Beach's Catamaran Hotel. He's a fine tenor sax player in his own right and, as a teacher, Joe has helped many an aspiring jazz player learn the rudiments of the music. Now 80, Joe's brings a lot of things to the table, but his most important asset is the size of his heart. It's huge. Joe Marillo recently sat down with Offramp's host T. Michael Crowell to talk about his life in music.

Ron Dhanifu: A Lifetime of Radio Activity
Blog Name: Jazz 88.3 BlogAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: November 15, 2012
Here's a recent article written by Robert Bush about Jazz 88.3 host Ron Dhanifu's life in radio that was originally published in the San Diego Troubador.  


It’s always been about the radio for me.
—Ron Dhanifu

“I feel like I was born to do this,” says Ron Dhanifu. Dhanifu mans the afternoon slot, from 1-4pm, on KSDS, the local jazz station. When he says he was born to be a disk jockey, he speaks from experience. He’s spent 40 years in radio, 30 of them (in two installments) at KSDS.
