As Victorian jazz listeners will know, Geoff is one of the four presenters of the Victorian Jazz Club’s “Jazz on a Saturday” which has been a voice of jazz continuously since the station was launched in 1976.
Last year Geoff called his program “A Lazy Wednesday Afternoon”and my guess is that the 2013 version will be a similar wide-ranging mix of jazz, blues and other genres chosen from Geoff’s vast and varied collection of recordings, presented in his inimitable relaxed and informed style.
The first program will go to air live on Wednesday 2 January, and will include “everything from Blind Lemon Jefferson to Art Pepper and beyond” (Geoff’s words).
If you’re within range of 3CR this will be required listening on January Wednesdays. And if you’re out of range, you can listen on your computer through streaming or podcast from http://www.3cr.org.au/3CR_streaming
And here’s Blind Lemon Jefferson singing “He Arose From the Dead”
