DR. MICHAEL HITTMAN IS HAPPY TO ANNOUNCE THAT HIS JAZZ INTERVIEW SERIES IS
BACK ON AIR. 

Starting on October 2nd 2006, ³In The Pocket² (formerly ³Sounds²) can now be
heard every Monday evening from 7:00-8:00 pm on
WLIU-FM 88.3, Southampton (http://www.wliu.org/), a National Public Radio
Station. Subtitled ³The Smart Jazz Talk Show,² Dr. Hittman, an
internationally-known professional anthropologist whose expertise and
publications center on Native Americans, once again will bring jazz artists
and their supporting cast (writers, photographers, film makers, and
club-owners) into the ³Studio Paramount,² our brand new radio facility in
the basement of Long Island University¹s Brooklyn Paramount, for lively,
thematic (if not academic) discourse about America¹s greatest art form.

As in the past, when interviews included such distinguished players as D. D.
Jackson, Vincent Herring, Eric Wyatt, Virginia Mayhew, Mat Maneri and Jack
Wilkins, along with Phil Schaap, Ira Gitler, Jean Bach, Bob Myers and Dale
Fitzgerald, the first thirteen of these interviews in the new series feature
Bill Saxton, Bob Cunningham, John McNeil, Ahmed Abdullah, as well as
interviews with non-musicians, such as the jazz writer David Kastin
(discussing the life of ³The Baroness²); Professor Joe Dorinson (on ³Lenny
Bruce & Jazz²) and others.
