January 7, 2007 From Ragtime to Kimbrough Time to Honoring the Two Kings Time (JB & Elvis that is)

On my radio show, Melva's Musings on Jazz, this week I had two guests in the studio with me - Nancy Lowther and Stan Lowe. Even though we were on the radio, Nancy came in a beautiful performing outfit with lots of glittery jewels. And Stan had a deep Elvis-like voice that was great when he sang - Can't Help Falling in Love. My show is live every Sunday from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. EST and features the music and musicians with NC roots. In the area of Carrboro and Chapel Hill, NC, you can hear me on the dial at 103.5 fm. And on the internet, you can catch my show any where in the world by going to the WCOM website and clicking on the upper righthand button for web-broadcast. You can also call in a request at 919 929-9601. Please join me for a fun and entertaining time.
