There’s a new radio show on Fridays on JazzFM at 10pm on Fridays, starting June 3rd.
The Ronnie Scott’s Radio presented by Jumoké Fashola, is an hour long show. Jumoke promises “tracks, interviews and behind the scenes trivia from the world’s most famous jazz club.”
In the first show there’s an interview with Dee Dee Bridgewater and Madeleine Bell.
The press release says: “Future guests include Kyle Eastwood, the son of the famed Hollywood actor Clint, Ron Carter, Joe Lovano, Eddie Palmieri, Marlena Shaw, Pharoah Sanders …..”
For those of us with an OCD knowledge-fetish, this news is not a complete bolt from the blue, since Richard Wheatly of JazzFM and Simon Cooke of Ronnie Scott’s are old colleagues from JazzFM in its previous incarnation.
