Our January Birthdays show is always dedicated to our mentor, WRVR broadcasting hero Ed Beach, born on January 16, 1923; we play his two show themes by Wes Montgomery. We celebrate the Herbie Nichols centennial with his very first recordings for Savoy. Our very special birthday greetings go out to living legends, Benny Golson and Jimmy Cobb, both celebrating their 90th year on the planet. Much more of course; check out the menu below. Don't be shy; hit the play button and enjoy the show.
