Celebrating Ornette Coleman's 80th Birthday (3/09/1930). Rebroadcast of 3/18/2001w/ guest V. Pedevski surveying the works of Ornette. The original show contains many album tracks and very interesting discussion on the background of the recording sessions and Ornette specifically.

This is a tape (two actually) that I've been carrying around for sometime waiting for the right opportunity. There is no better time than in celebration of Ornette's 80th birthday to do this.

A full album side of classic comedy from Mr Ed the Talking Horse, and the story of Ed The Song Writer

March is Women's History Month so we play a set from Mary Lou Williams, the first woman in Jazz. Live piano quartet from Ronnie Scotts in London from 1954

Getting prepared for St. Patricks Day next week we share a recipe for good 'ol Corned Beef and Cabbage. Real easy and delicious!

Join us again next Friday 11am to 1pm for another helping of Lunchtime. Next week will be a very special radiothon edition!!!
