Blowin' at the Beeb

Ten days from now (Saturday August 17) Tyne Bank Brewery will reverberate to the sounds of the 2019 Newcastle Jazz Festival. Tyneside's jazz fans know all about it but every last bit of publicity is to be welcomed and promoter Michael Lamb (pictured) wasn't going to look a gift horse in the mouth when BBC Newcastle offered him the chance to talk about the event live on air.
At eight o'clock last night in the company of Strictly Smokin' Big Band vocalist Alice Grace, Lamb (Strictly Smokin' MD) chatted to programme host Tamsin Robson about the forthcoming one day jazz festival on Walker Road, Newcastle. The Evening Show ('Bringing you the best the North East has to offer') is available via the Beeb's online 'listen again' facility for another 29 days at: www.bbc.co.uk/bbcnewcastle.
