Longside Radio - Where Variety Matters

Join Mark David for an Hour of Great Music

View on Facebook

Hello...well in 'The Jazz Hour' this week I can promise you a 'buddy good programme'...why?..well as part of the proceedings I'll be recognising the birthdays of jazz pianist Bud Powell and drummer Buddy Rich, both of whom made significant contributions to the music we call Jazz.

I'll have another track or two in the 'Humphrey Lyttelton Season' and this being the first Sunday of the month of October I'll have a new 'Album of the Month' for you which really does touch 'the heart strings'.

I'll have some details of up and coming gigs, plus much, much more.

So as usual, it's 9pm on a Sunday evening, here on Longside Radio and I do hope you'll join me.

Stay safe and have a wonderful weekend.

'The Jazz Man'
