Ever so often I like to take the opportunity to talk about music because music has always been a big part of my life. I first discovered by enthusiasm for music in the mid-70s from groups like Led Zeppelin, Boston, the Steve Miller Band, The Bee Gees and anything else that would make my body move and my mind wander.

On any given Saturday or Sunday you can find me at the local thrift store going through bins of records. Here is where I find things I’ve already collected and maybe a few that I’ve been looking for. On this particular day I find a 45 mini album by Jonah Jones. Jones was a jazz trumpeter who created concise versions of jazz and swing and jazz standards that appealed to a mass audience. Jones died in 2000 at the age of 90.

So tonight I spin a little jazz on the turntable for your listening enjoyment. Thanks for listening.
