OFOB for 3/3/15

Friends,

Below you will find the playlist for last night’s radio show. I’m listening to it right now, and am enjoying the flow of creative music, both new and more classic. I hope you get a chance to listen before next week’s show is uploaded and takes the place of this one… you’ll find plenty of worthy music and musicians and some quality food for your brain.

You may also notice that KUSP has started its pledge drive. Note that I feel fortunate that for over 30 years I have been able to help you get hip to some of the hippest music from the compendium of jazz, with no strings attached!!!! This is a beautiful thing, and relatively rare for a public station to provide more than the news and talking heads. A tip of the proverbial porkpie is definitely due for KUSP.

Keep those ears growing!!

Larry
