December 17, 2006 From The Blindboys of Alabama to John Coltrane

I wish all a good holiday and have enjoyed sharing some unusual music for this show. I pray for some peace in 2007. My radio show, Melva's Musings on Jazz, can be heard locally in the Carrboro/Chapel Hill area on 103.5 fm on Sundays from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. (EST). I feature North Carolina's jazz music and musicians with roots here. You can hear my show anywhere in the world by going to and clicking on the web-broadcast button in the upper righthand corner.
