Jim Wilke, the proprietor of Jazz After Hours, writes:
I thought you’d like to know I’m featuring several selections by Bud Shank in each hour of tonight’s program. Music ranges from his earliest World Pacific and Pacific Jazz records in the ’50s through his latest issued recordings. Please pass the word to others you think would be interested.
