This week's Ronnie Scott's Radio Show is EPIC, because Ian Shaw is documenting the history of the original home of Ronnie Scott's 'The Old Place' at 39 Gerrard Street Chinatown, in this the 60th year of the club.
In the programme we chat Ronnie Scott's co-owner Michael Watt and resident saxophonist Alex Garnett. You'll also hear the boss speaking (sorry about the jokes), from his long-time partner Mary Scott, Tubby Hayes, Zoot Sims' wife Louise and many others who were there.
We'll also tell you about the exciting Pop-Up re-creation of 'The Old Place' taking place for two weeks at Gerry's on Dean Street from August 19th.
This programme was first broadcast on Jazz FM in the UK on August 16th 2019.
