WZUM, Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival, a new theme for The Soul Show

I’m a little jet lagged in Catalonia, so it’s a good time to cover some good territory.


Pittsburgh International Jazz Festival begins 9/14. On 9/16 – 9/17, media sponsor WZUM will have a big presence next to the performance stages. Please stop by to meet us hosts, witness an on-air artist interview in process, or to purchase the latest Soul Show tee or vee. One of my must-sees is Nicholas Payton.

”Keys, Please” on The Soul Show

Yesterday, while waiting for a flight to ATL, I reached out to the friend/listener who first proposed “All Day Horns” as a TSS theme concept. As a follow-up, I mentioned a keyboards theme. Within a half hour, we texted out most of the lineup, including Shirley Scott, Bernie Worrell, Brian Auger, Dr. Lonnie Smith, Aretha at the Fillmore, Dumpstaphunk and so on. This week’s episode will be a rebroadcast of February’s Don Cornelius tribute, so make sure you are with me the following week.
