Magic Records with CalZone!

I've got a 'thing' for off-beat pop, rock, soul, jazz, R&B, C&W, EZ listening, and all the sub-genres...primarily from the 1950's-80's.  I smoosh it all together and that's Magic Records.  If you don't like what you're hearing, wait 5 minutes.  Currently my show is scheduled on Wednesdays from 8pm-9pm. A SOLID HOUR OF RADIO POWER! I also sometimes do pop-up fill-in's.  Check out my mixcloud page for the back story!

    Last nights show explores some music made by Jazz artists as they adventurously cover rock and pop music of the 1960's. These selections are not hacks exploiting pop music for $$$, although I do dig that crap too! These selections are the for the most part serious attempts by inspired and talented musicians to interpret and embrace what the younger generation was digging at the time, and often the results are provocative and incredibly moving!
