This one was for Dad. And the Santangelo family.

Scott Santangelo's new book, "The Ohio Valley Jazz Festival," is a tribute to his father, promoter Dino Santangelo, who created the summer jazz festival in 1962 which morphed into the city's huge R&B weekend.

BB King Blues special!

Oct 5, 2015

This past summer, I produced a one-hour special featuring the music of blues legend B.B. King who passed away on May 14th, 2015.  I had planned on airing the special in mid-September in honor of his 90th birthday on September 16th, 2015, but due to the King Records specials which aired throughout September, the B.B. King special was postponed.  So, this coming Saturday night, October 10th, at 11pm on WVXU/WMUB, it's a tribute to B.B.King!
