AFRO-AMERICAN MUSIC INSTITUTE CELEBRATES 36 YEARS
Pain Relief Beyond Belief
January 30th marks the 108th birth anniversary of the incomparable, Roy Eldridge. To those aware of Roy Eldridge and his genius, I needn't go further. For those unaware, his skill as a trumpet player, is marked with a fierce bravado coupled with a relaxed sense of swing. Roy Eldridge's genius can not be permitted to disappear through lackof interest and lack of understanding. Tune in to: WKCR.org on Wednesday, January 30th ALL DAY and hear Roy's music. A special presentation on Pittsburgh's own, Roy Eldridge, will be presented by Phil Schaap at 3:30 PM.
Incidentally: "Lookie, Lookie, Lookie, Here Comes Cookie" by the Teddy Hill Orchestra, was Roy's first studio recording, dated Feb.26, 1935.
