Ring Dem Bells!

WesMontgomeryThe KUSP Pledge Drive has begun and Lionel Hampton provides the musical theme of the show–”Ring Dem Bells”–call 1-888-777-1507 to support the station that brings you so many good programs throughout the year!

We listen to lots of wonderful music on the show–José James (KJ this Monday), the Paul Winter Sextet, Ike Quebec, Jess Stacy, Billie Holiday, and later a new cut by Chris Potter.

ITG honors the music of guitarist Wes Montgomery (pictured); the 90th anniversary of his birth is today.  Here is a great two part video of Montgomery in performance in 1965.
