On Friday night, longtime St. Louis radio personality and jazz advocate Don Wolff celebrated the one-year anniversary of the move of his long-running program "I Love Jazz" to KFUO (99.1 FM).
Wolff's anniversary broadcast brought some additional good news, as he announced that starting on May 29, "I Love Jazz," which for the past year has been broadcast from 10:00 p.m. to 1:00 a.m. Fridays, will expand to four hours and move to an earlier time slot, airing from 8:00 p.m. to midnight every Friday.
Wolff tells StLJN he plans to kick off the four-hour format on May 29 with a show on Benny Goodman's 100th birthday celebration, featuring as his special guest the historian and Goodman expert Jim Ryan. "I will be playing rare & unreleased selections along with my own favorites in the weeks leading up to the birthdate," he said via email.
(Edited 5/22/09 to correct the date of Wolff's first four-hour show.)
