February 7th WRFR Radio Show 9am-11am

This Friday's show is called "The Influence of Lennie Tristano". Paul played with Lennie on and off from 1958-1962. Lennie didn't record all that much but I will be playing selections from Continuity as well as Warne Marsh, Lee Konitz Live at the Half Note and a few other albums. I'll be reading a section of Paul's autobiography that focuses on Lennie Tristano.
The Podcast link above is up and running. I hope to post Friday's podcast Friday night. I'm not up to the multitasking involved in taking phone calls during the show (not yet, anyway), but I'll have the Facebook page open for comments.
