Tonight on The Backyard Barbecue on WXYC -- it's my last show as the local music show coordinator at WXYC! It's also an *~*extra special extended edition*~* from 8 to 10 PM. I'll be playing my Top 10 Local Releases of 2012 and then my favorite local records from the WXYC library.
Denver C. hosts tonight's feature on open-structured free jazz and Don Cherry, an artist whose sound is emblematic of the transition from free jazz into world and other music, and blues into jazz into rock into rap/hip-hop. Cherry's is jazz in the non-classical sense, marking the influence of the electronic age, instruments from Africa and Brazil, and modal structures from India. Nine to midnight on the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC, 89.3 FM!
DJ Karina S will be hosting tonight's Thursday Night Feature on Bollywood Disco. Tune in from 9 to Midnight to hear late 70's to early 80's hindi disco hits from singers like Asha Bhosle and Kishore Kumar and producers such as Bappi Lahiri and R.D. Burman

Jazz great Dave Brubeck passed away Wednesday, December 5, just a day shy of his 92nd birthday. Known best for 'Take Five,' Brubeck's talent at integrating jazz elements into classical genres and more made his compositions recognizable and accessible to many audiences. In addition to jazz, Brubeck composed and arranged operettas, religious music, and show tunes, and had a special place in his heart for the cowboy song. Tune in 9 to midnight to the Thursday Night Feature on WXYC for three hours of the late Brubeck's sound.
