March 21 WRFR Radio Show 9am- 11am 93.3FM

I found this record in Paul's collection. Friday's show is built around Charlie Parker and Cole Porter. I'll be playing from this album, Bird's last, recorded in 1955. Paul's friend Teddy Kotick plays bass, and I'll have a couple of readings about Paul's early days in NYC. We'll be hearing some from the On Broadway series, the Electric Bebop Band, a Sam Most recording and more.
