NOTE: This post also includes scoped airchecks of the 57th anniversary programming that preceded me.

The March 16 Instrumental Invasion on WCWP was recorded on January 26 (four segments) and 27 (two). Pickups were recorded on February 22 and March 3. More on that below.

The playlist was created on January 23, but I put off annotations until the 25th. (I saved the PDF in grayscale to hide the change in ink color when I switched pens.) The talk break script draft began on the 25th and was finished early on the 26th.

Jeff Kroll told me in December that March 16 was WCWP-FM’s 57th anniversary, so I played a song from 1965 to mark the occasion. That song was preceded by “Freedom Sound” by The Jazz Crusaders. I acquired Freedom Sound through a four-CD set containing seven early albums, plus one with Les McCann.

A few weeks before air, I learned from Jeff that the 57th anniversary would be treated like the original carrier current station’s 60th anniversary in October, led by a special edition of Strictly Jazz. He initially said Hank Neimark and John LiBretto would be hosting, and I redid the second talk break to acknowledge the ongoing celebration with just Hank and John as hosts. As noted in the 100th show post from two weeks ago, the spot breaks had promos for Strictly Jazz and Jeff and Pat’s edition of The Rock Show. I re-redid the second talk break because Jon Korkes was listed as a third host.

Here is the scope of Strictly Jazz (with so many great stories):

and The Rock Show:

2:46 PM UPDATE: Pat posted two photos taken during Strictly Jazz. The first is with hosts John LiBretto, Hank Neimark, and Jon Korkes:

…and the second photo adds Jeff:

As you can see, the shows were done from Studio 2, board operated by Jeff (when not posing for this photo).

Getting back to my show, “All ‘n All” by Nelson Rangell was first played last January 20. I used it in this show to set up how composer David Mann borrowed from it when writing “With You All the Way” by Steve Cole, which Steve wrote with Dave.

“With You All the Way” was part of the second 2007-16 segment, which I opted for in place of a second 2017 to present.
