KDHX broadcasting documentary
series on John Coltrane

Over the next four weeks, St. Louis community radio station KDHX (88.1 FM) will present segments of the acclaimed 2001 radio documentary "Tell Me How Long Trane’s Been Gone" during the first hour of Josh Weinstein's program "All Soul, No Borders," which airs at 10:30 p.m. Sundays.

The five-hour program produced by noted radio documentarian Steve Rowland "analyzes and celebrates the genius of John Coltrane" through music, commentary and interviews, including conversations with a number of musicians who have died since it was first broadcast, such as Max Roach, Art Davis, Alice Coltrane and Elvin Jones.

Alas, Weinstein's note touting this gem didn't arrive at StLJN HQ until after the first segment had already aired this past Sunday. Fortunately, you can get caught up with hour one by visiting the "All Soul, No Borders" Web page, where each episode will be archived and available for online streaming for two weeks after the air date. Parts two through five will be broadcast starting this coming Sunday, May 3 and continuing though Sunday, May 24.
