of KFAI's Rhythm and Grooves Saturday morning series spins vinyl
I first worked as a deejay for Friday night dances at a local church in the Bronx during the late 50s and early 60s. I began broadcasting at KFAI in 1979, when I’d begin the stations’ broadcast day as a host ofShake Up Southside on Monday Mornings. I then moved to Wednesdays from Midnight to 2AM, with a show called Streetlight Serenade. I moved Streetlight to Saturday nights from 9PM – 11PM, before “retiring” to go back to school in 1989. I came back to the station in the last half of the 90s, and started Rhythm & Grooves in July of 2002.
Though Rhythm & Grooves focuses on jazz, my record collection (which actually includes vinyl as well as CDs, and electronic storage) encompasses rock n’ roll, pop, rhythm n’ blues, roots, and world music, with a special section for the music of New Orleans. READ MORE
