JAZZ LIVES!!! May 18th: My Final LIVE Broadcast

Well, it’s been fun…

With Charlotte Community Radio going off air this month, the last LIVE edition of JAZZ LIVES!!! with CurtJazz, will air Thursday, May 18th from 6:00pm to 9:00pmEst.

When Bridget asked me last spring if I would be interested in having a program on Charlotte Community Radio (CLTCRadio), it was exciting, a bit scary albeit perfectly timed. I worked in AM-FM radio in New York City through most of the 90’s, ran a web-based jazz radio station from 2004 to 2016, but I had been away from live radio since 2000. So I was somewhat out of practice on May 12, 2016 when I first opened the mic, but my trepidation quickly dissipated and the joy returned.

So I want to say “Thank You”; first, to Bridget B. Sullivan and Melvin Nix, co-founders of CLTCRadio, for the chance to knock some rust off these old pipes and remind me that this is “what I do”.

And a huge thanks to my guests. The incredible, world-class musicians who call the Carolinas home and who took time out of their incredibly busy schedules to spend some time with us: Dawn Anthony; Lovell Bradford; Will Campbell; Nicci Canada; Tenya Coleman; Harvey Cummings; Lonnie Davis; Ocie Davis; Buff Dillard; Mike Hackett; Amos Hoffman, and Tim Scott, Jr.; I am forever in your debt.

My biggest appreciation goes out to all of you who listened and hopefully, enjoyed the music, as I shared my passion for jazz and for the artistry of living musicians. Some of you were friends from long ago that I reunited with. Some are a more recent part of my life. You were all a huge part of rekindling an old dream and I will always be grateful to you for that.

I’m on Twitter and Instagram as @curtjazz, and on Facebook as CurtJazzRadio. My website is curtjazz.com. Let’s keep in touch.

God Bless You and Goodnight.

Introducing Luxury Club With Ben “Trobro” Doherty

Photo of DJ Trobro - Ben DohertyBen “Trobro” Doherty is a former college radio DJ, Computer Engineer, and Music Director all at WSBF-FM Clemson. He’s been spellbound by electronic music, and college and community radio ever since a fateful sunrise drive while listening to Tycho for the first time. Before singularizing himself with the digital world slowly encapsulating him, he swears he got one last glimpse of the sun.

He ran several radio shows during his time at WSBF including Mollified, a long form ambient show; NOISE, a show that experimented and studied sound and noise, harsh, and soft; Shark Tank Block Party, a rotating electronic genre show that was always unpredictable, and, most recently, Luxury Club.
