“For the People”

Tune in to 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco (www.kpoo.com), Tuesday the 30th January, 4pm – 6pm, PST, “For the People.” In addition to commentary from Mumia Abu-Jamal, “For the People” continues to share material from the NYC Winter JazzFest and Jazz Congress (occurring earlier this month), including the keynote speech by Kareem Abdul-Jabar. We bid farewell to one of my favourite South African artists–Hugh Masekela. Time permitting, “For the People” will also air the panel discussion on Jazz and Race (recorded at the Jazz Congress in NYC a few weeks ago). Moreover, there will be ticket offerings for Scottish-born, former Tower of Power tenor saxophonist, Richard Elliot (www.richardelliot.com), who appears this week in Oakland at Yoshi’s (www.yoshis.com). That and more, Tuesday the 30th January, on 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco (www.kpoo.com), 4pm – 6pm, PST, “For the People.” Produced and hosted by Safi wa Nairobi (safi@kpoo.com).

“For the People”

Tune in to 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco (http://www.kpoo.com), Tuesday the 26th December, 4pm – 6pm, PST, “For the People,” as we close out this year of Tuesday afternoons with a farewell salute to longtime San Francisco Bay Area radio broadcaster, Rev. Dr. Sheila Robinson who, after more than four decades, has decided to return to the east coast. There will be more music from the Caesar Frazier Quartet (www.caesarfrazier.com). Truly a remarkable story regarding Mr. Frazier who, following a 40-year hiatus, has returned to the music scene with an album (“Instinct,” on the Doodlin’ label, October 2017), that initially charted at number 220 and is now ranked in the top ten on the JazzWeek chart (www.jazzweek.com). We will have plenty good inspirational, toe-tapping and hand-clapping gospel music; commentary; as well as new music from Cynthia Hilts and Lyric Fury (www.cynthiahilts). “For the People” also gets back to the birthday salute to Little Richard, who went 85 on the 5th December. That and more, Tuesday the 26th December, on 89.5FM, KPOO, San Francisco, 4pm – 6pm, PST, “For the People.” Co-produced and co-hosted by Rev. Dr. Sheila Robinson (sheilarob@gmail.com) and Safi wa Nairobi (safi@kpoo.com).
