KFAI Presents Black History Month Specials

3pm: Max Roach – Drums Unlimited
A tribute to the late Max Roach. In this hour-long special Max Roach tells his story with frankness and a characteristic sharp wit, supported by special guests including Dizzy Gillespie, and noted drummers Paul Motion and Art Taylor.

4pm: Sly and the Family Stone: Family Affair
A one-hour radio documentary about Sly the Family Stone, their music, their turbulent history, and the indelible marks they left behind.

5pm: James Brown, Bluesman
The Godfather Of Soul, the late James Brown, will always be remembered for the funk music he developed more than for his blues. But Brown brought his unique spirit and talent to the blues genre and to jazz, even if the recordings were deep cuts on albums or unissued until many years after he made them. This special features some of those deep tracks, including his versions of songs from the repertoire of his greatest influence, Louis Jordan— as well as his haunting King Heroin and other affecting performances not at the top of the James Brown catalog of hits.

KFAI Presents Black History Month Specials

1pm: Finding Solid Ground
Finding Solid Ground is a one-hour documentary that examines residents’ sense of security in New Orleans and the Louisiana Gulf Coast, after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. From public housing to Uptown mansions, city music clubs to rural fishing docks, this special covers a range of perspectives. As Louisianans continue to piece and patch together solutions to social, environmental, and economic crises, Finding Solid Ground is an audio snapshot that aims to answer the question: What’s it like down there now?

2pm: Jazz Profiles: Sun Ra
He was an avatar of free improvisation and the first to bring electronics and synthesizers into jazz. But he was also a pianist for the Fletcher Henderson big band. This show is about Sun Ra’s Cosmic Swing.
