   I made my debut presenting jazz on the radio at KRCC in Colorado Springs
on February 24, 1983. The following is the playlist of my first show, which
I will be recreating this Saturday night, February 23, for my 25th
anniversary. Note that all the selections are long, which I planned as a
precaution because it was all LPs at that time, and I was given very little
training (a couple of hours) before being thrown on air.

MAX ROACH - Nommo (Drums Unlimited)

LEE MORGAN - Absolutions (Live At The Lighthouse)

THELONIOUS MONK - Well, You Needn't (Monk's Music)

                                            Brilliant Corners, Ba-Lue
Bolivar Ba-Lues Are (Brilliant Corners)

JOHN COLTRANE - Ole (Ole Coltrane)

                                      Blue Train (Blue Train)

ELVIN JONES - Agenda (Poly-Currents)

CHARLIE PARKER - Buzzy, Milestones, Little Willie Leaps (Savoy Sessions)
