Lucky Old Souls

Every Tuesday at 2 p.m., Feldie brings you two hours of the hottest, swingin-est jazz and R&B tracks from back in the day... and I mean back in the day, as in 50, 60, 70+ years ago. That's right... The best jazz, pop standards, blues of all kinds, early rock & roll, songs that were hits, and songs that should have been hits. We're not nostalgic--we just know that music transcends time... and a hit is a hit.

This week on the Jazz Continuum What’s with This: The Jazz Edition. I’m not so good at buying gifts, so to celebrate our 23rd wedding anniversary, I'm making a radio “mix tape” for the wife.

Join us!

The first jazz I experienced as a kid in the 1970s was in my mom’ s red Buick through the speaker in the center of the back seat. My first jazz song, Chuck Mangione’s FM mega hit “Feel So Good.” Note to self at the time: “This is not for me.” Tonight we visit some of the great Jazz of the 1970’s that I missed due to a bad first impression.
