New jazz program airs on WACG 90.7
Augusta State is host to the studio of Georgia Public Broadcasting for this section of the state. Located in the Counseling Education Training Center, the studio has been managed by Alan Cooke, an alumnus of ASU, for 30 years. A new jazz program, Jazz without Borders, airs live on the station Saturday nights from midnight-3 a.m. The host, Mitchell Feldman, is a nationally-known jazz radio programmer who has been publicizing, promoting, and marketing jazz, classical, and world music since 1976. He recently relocated to Augusta.
“We are very fortunate to have a broadcaster and jazz authority of Mr. Feldman’s stature sharing his talents with our listeners,” says Mr. Cooke.
Jazz without Borders will feature post-1950s modern jazz, classic fusion, and freer forms of jazz from such creative music scenes as Chicago’s Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, St. Louis’s Black Artists’ Group, and the lower Manhattan loft scene from the heydays in the 1970s. The show will also feature current releases by artists keeping the mainstream jazz tradition alive today, established and emerging visionaries extending jazz’s stylistic horizons, and international artists.
