The veteran Pennsylvania broadcaster Russ Neff is once again doing a jazz program, but he’s streaming it on the internet. He writes that he was inspired by Jim Wilke’s Jazz After Hours to return to jazz radio.
I’d not been on the air since 1991 and since no local station was interested in my services, I decided that online audio was the way to go…audio streaming is my chosen vehicle.
To hear Russ’s current My Favorite Things, click here and then on “Listen Here.” The program has a minimum of talk from Neff—all of it informative—and a generous, mellow and varied supply of music, some of it unexpected. As I write this, he has just played B.B. King singing and Eric Clapton gargling “Come Rain or Come Shine” and segued into “The Quintessence,” by Rob McConnell and the Boss Brass.
