January 16th was Ed Beach's birthday. Compared to him, ALL of US are amateurs when it comes to presenting jazz on the radio. Our January BD show is in honor and dedicated to the memory of Ed Beach and WRVR, New York. Ask anyone of a certain vintage and they will second this statement: That's a picture of Ed in action to the right, and my totally inadequate impersonation of Ed's ID style at the start of SHOW 48. January BDs: Benny Golson, Red Allen, Steph AND Django, Max Roach, Myra Melford, DD Jackson,Steve Grossman, James Carter, Jay McShann, Horace Parlan, McLaughlin, Burton,Kenny Wheeler,Jane Ira Bloom,Joe Pass, Cyrus Chestnut.
