"Blues, juice and Jazz!" - Jeanne Kelly

American Variety Radio

American Variety Radio™ first aired as a weekly talk show with host Court Lewis on Melbourne, Florida’s WMEL-AM920 in February 2004. After more than 3 years on the AM airwaves across Central Florida, the show joined the program lineup of WFIT-FM, at the Florida Institute of Technology. Building on that base, American Variety has expanded to several other Public Radio stations around Florida and the Southeast U.S.

A Taste of Jazz

A Taste Of Jazz is mainstream jazz at its best hosted by Dave Fries (friesd@fit.edu). The classic sounds are highlighted with artists like Davis, Coltrane, Brubeck and Mingus as well as the contemporary sounds of today’s headliners like Brad Mehladu, Stacy Dillard, Joshua Redman and so many others. Contemporary big bands are sprinkled in and we don’t shy away from tasteful jazz vocalists. What you won’t hear is smooth jazz or recordings prior to the 1950’s. The emphasis here is good jazz without a whole lot of chatter.

C'est la Vie - Acoustic and World Beat

Produced by Blair Clark, C'est la Vie brings you the best and the latest in world music.

Originally published on Thu March 29, 2012 2:33 pm

Merrill Garbus, the woman behind tUnE-yArDs, began as a solo act, and her talent practically explodes out of every performance. She commands any space, especially from behind a set-up of a tom and snare drum, a ukulele, and her bare feet atop the loop pedals from which she builds her compositions. Every sound that Garbus weaves into her songs is so deliberately placed that "experimental" seems too nonchalant a word.
