Monday Date

Russell has kindly directed to me to an exciting new series on Radio 2.
Starting this Monday, October 19, at 11:30 pm, Curtis Stigers, no less, hosts a program detailing the rise to fame of Benny Goodman.
The six part series includes archive interviews with such as Peggy Lee, Buddy Greco, Artie Shaw and Lionel Hampton. Dankworth's in there too.
Should be well worth twiddling the cat's whisker on your crystal set. Alternatively BBC iplayer will do the biz.
Earlier on 2, the BBC Big Band do it at 10:00 pm whilst over on Radio 3 there's a lunchtime concert (1:00 pm) from Wigmore Hall by the trio Arthurs, Hoiby, Ritchie who perform a variety of compositions by New Generation artist Tom Arthurs.
In the evening, Jazz on 3 present a gig by US Sax player Darius Jones and his trio recorded live in New York. This goes out at 11:15 clashing with the Benny Goodman program on 2 - nice one BBC!
Lance.
