Celebrating the 60th anniversary of Motown Records.

It’s Springtime and that special time of year again, it’s time for the annual R&B Jukebox Gospel Show!

R&B is deeply rooted in music from the gospel and spiritual traditions.  And every year, on the night before Easter,  we celebrate that sound on the R&B Jukebox Gospel show.

It’s familiar R&B artists like BB King, Sam Cooke, and Solomon Burke, with some of gospel music’s greatest artists.  And it all sounds like Rhythm and Blues!

Join Rolando Garcia on Saturday, April 20 at 6 pm for the annual R&B Jukebox Gospel Show.

Annual Easter Guitar Pull - The Nightside with Andy O'

On Easter Sunday, April 21, KUVO Jazz continues a tradition that started in Andy O's childhood. The family guitar pull would start during the Easter BBQ. Friends and relatives would stop by with musical instruments (mostly guitars) and spend the day playing and singing.

After the Easter egg hunt and before the chocolate bunny hangovers the yard and later the living room would echo with music and stories and laughter and food and libations. Those echoes came to Andy O' when he began hosting The Nightside with Andy O' on Sunday nights from 8 to midnight.

Join host Michael Wulfsohn Monday night for “Wulfie’s Wax Museum,” on the Monday Night Beat, as we celebrate the life and birthday of one of the most prolific, and all-time great jazz flutists, Herbie Mann.  Herbie released over 85 albums as a leader in his lifelong career. We’ll listen to his 21st release, and his first on Atlantic Records, “The Common Ground.” This highly intriguing album blends Afro-Caribbean, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, West, North and Central African music into what he calls, “Afro-Jazz.”
