Today on JRR.

Alyn Shipton's Jazz Records Requests on BBC Radio 3 was rather special today. As always, there was a good, balanced choice that this week included a request by Gateshead Jazz Appreciation Society for long term member and northeast jazz enthusiast for many years - Margaret Barnes. Margaret, not in the best of health these days, was and still is an enthusiastic fan of the music of Stan Kenton so it was appropriate that the record the society requested for her was Intermission Riff. No doubt she enjoyed listening to it again and we wish her well.
