March 7 WRFR Radio Show 9am- 11am 93.3FM

Original Discography
I'll be playing a little more Zoot Sims and Mose Allison tomorrow. Then I will move into an unreleased Joe Castro LP from Clover records. I have some Gary Peacock, Bill Evans and Paul Bley as well as a sprinkling of John Coltrane. Most recordings will be from around 1965. Sounds like a lot, hope I can fit it all in!
