In the Spotlight: The Black Masters with Bob Parlocha
In the Spotlight: The Black Masters with Bob Parlocha Wed, Jun 7th from 6:00AM - 10:00AM
There's no future without the past and anybody who doesn't really understand where jazz has come from has no right to try to direct where it's going. Cannonball Adderley

As part of celebrating the birth of Miles Davis KCSM turns to the beloved KJAZ host Bob Parlocha. During the 1980s, Parlocha created a multi-part series that aired Saturday nights on KJAZ: In the Spotlight: Black Masters. Shining the spotlight on twelve different Black jazz artists, Parlocha's series totaled 37 hours of original programming.

In The Spotlight: Black Masters has been lovingly restored through the generosity of Pamela Parlocha and Ananda G. Brady.

Atlantic Records, Part 6 - 1953
We’re presenting a behemoth series celebrating the first 10 years of Atlantic's existence: 1947-57. This week in part six, the entire program is immersed in 1953. The Clovers and Ruth Brown continue to rack up the hits, while Joe Turner enjoys the biggest hit of his career with "Honey Hush." Atlantic introduces two singers that had been around for a while: LaVern Baker and Clyde McPhatter. As always, Matt the Cat has thrown in some records that you don't hear much anymore from Carmen Taylor, Choker Campbell, The Diamonds, and Tommy Ridgley.
