Shows - The Night Beat with Dan Feinberg | Thursday 8pm

Saw MJQ at age 10, Muddy Waters at 14 and original Charles Lloyd Quartet at 15. Hooked on good music ever since. Urban Anthropologist by trade made me interested in how jazz and world cultures interact. Had a radio show in Chicago before KUVO. Co-host of Thursday Night Beat and soon to launch new show The Jazz River, a cousin to the late great Scotty’s Origins Orgy in Rhythm. Jazz is democracy in action; where people work together to create something wonderful while maintaining their individuality and freedom.
