   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)

Here's my history:

Night Train - April 1990 to December 2001 - Saturdays, 6 PM to 1 AM

                       January 2002 to present - Saturdays, 6 PM to midnight
