On Saturday, February 22, at 10:00 p.m., KUVO’s performance archive show “On Stage” presents a celebration of the Phyllis A. Greer Performance Studio.
What began as an oversized, high-ceilinged storage room in the mid-90s was gradually transformed into one of the most active broadcast performance spaces in the United States. Early in KUVO’s history, we hosted musicians right in the control room. It sounded great, but it was cramped. A vision was birthed to create a space for musicians to present their art more fully.
A conservative estimate of more than 750 performances include the world’s top players, in formats from intimate solo recitals, to funk jams, to blues parties, to student ensembles, to big bands that barely fit in the room.
Producer and host of “On Stage” Susan Gatschet presents a few of her favorite sessions, some just unearthed from original masters tapes on DAT format. Don’t miss “On Stage,” Saturday nights at 10:00 p.m., only on KUVO Jazz.
