Can Haz DJ on now with Jazz, Christmas and Tom Waits’ birthday

Tuesday, December 7, 10pm

That’s right! On the air as you read this. I will be updating the playlist as we go, but here’s what’s in store:

  1. it’s Tom Waits’ 61st birthday, so I’m starting the show with a few covers of his and will follow that up with a piece or two of the man hisself
  2. JAZZ! Specifically classic Blue Note jazz by players like Dexter Gordon, Art Blakey, and Sonny Rollins. Even more specifically, these are from releases in the RVG series: 20th Century classics originally recorded by Rudy Van Gelder and then recently personally remastered by him.
  3. Christmas Music!  Lots of strange and wonderful and ‘non-traditional’ stuff:  3 alternative reindeer songs and a few songs about firearms.
