As you can imagine there are innumerable details and surprises at every turn with our current move. Rest assured that we are taking all precautions to keep the music flowing through the device of your choosing; radio, computer, mobile, etc., but we are having intermittent outages in both the on-air signal and the stream. If you're in a bind for some KSDS content remember, The Speakeasy has a lot of cool stuff that you may not have heard recently. Thanks for your patience during this time...and now back to the business at hand.

Generally speaking I'm slow to assemble a program. I'm open to suggestion from anywhere beforehand. But when it all comes into focus and the thoughts, pictures, and memories build a structures that is ready. I leave a window open, just in case.
  • Rambler is a fun tune by tuba master Bob Stewart. I'm so glad Arthur Blythe has included the lower register in so much of his work. Grandpa had a Rambler and it was something else entirely.
  • Ken Thomson is Who To Watch For. Out of the blue is this tune called Welding For Freedom and it justifies my strategy of leaving a window open. Win/win.
  • Nathan Hubbard collect SDMA for Best Jazz Album. There was a lot of texture in the eleven o'clock hour. Tons of great names contributing, and Nathan making it bubble. xlnt
Thanks for listening
