Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

A Change is Gonna Come

It’s all change tonight on Radio 2. After thirty years presenting his weekly blues programme Paul Jones has called it a day. From tonight (Monday 14), starting at eight o’clock, one hour later than Jones’ old slot, it’s The Cerys Matthews Blues Show. Cerys’ studio guest is Tom Jones who’ll be talking about his love of the blues.

Jools Holland moves from ten o’clock to nine o’clock and the boogie-woogie piano playing host is joined by Elkie Brooks. From Vinegar Joe to her solo career, Elkie will be chatting about her life in the music business. And what’s more, Elkie will be singing a number with Holland’s band.


Meanwhile over on Radio 3 at 11:00pm Jazz Now presents highlights of the Christian McBride Big Band’s exclusive British concert appearance at the recent Cheltenham Jazz Festival – read Steve T’s concert review right here on BSH.
