First album I ever owned: I bought my first three records all on the same day — Chicken and Dumplings by Bobby Timmons, Soul Clinic by Hank Crawford, and Soul Message by Richard Groove Holmes.

Five desert island albums: Anything by Coltrane or Miles

Greatest place to see live music: I love outdoor festivals and concerts.

Favorite book about music/musician: The Music of Black Americans by Eileen Southern

When not listening to Jazz, I listen to Stevie Wonder, Prince

If I wasn’t a radio host, I’d be a psychiatrist.

The best part of my job is hearing lots of new music and meeting lots of people.
