Jazz Straightahead is a weekly two-hour radio program featuring jazz, hosted by "Doc Jazz" (aka Cary Meister). Call it straightahead, mainstream, or acoustic, the program is in the line that begins with traditional (New Orleans, Chicago), on through swing, bop, cool, hard bop, third stream, and post-bop, right up to today's young lions of the sax, trumpet, piano, bass, and drums--and other instruments.Occasionally, Doc Jazz will digress into jazz-related and other improvisatory musics (blues, Afro-Cuban, Brazilian, and various other ethnicities), and two features within the show are Jazz West to East, a calendar of the jazz scene in southern California and Arizona and Yuma Jazz Calendar, which highlights what's going on in all the Jazz in Yuma, Arizona.

Richard B or The Jazzman as he has come to be known, describes Yuma's Latin Jazz Corner as being a show that takes you on an exotic journey… from the coast of Brazil to the beautiful beaches of Jamaica, through the streets of Havana to the Jazz clubs of Palm Beach…without ever leaving your chair. And for those driving down the highway…it seems to turn a simple trip into a sweet island journey …so, if you have a taste for something different …join me every Saturday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00pm, to enjoy the best in jazz with a twist of Brazilian, dash of Caribbean, spiced up with a lot of Latin grooves.

If you've never heard This American Life, our staff's favorites page provides a great introduction to what we do. You might want to start there. After a few episodes, we're sure you'll figure it out. Or, if you're looking for a written introduction, here goes:One of our problems from the start has been that when we try to describe This American Life in a sentence or two, it just sounds awful. For instance: each week we choose a theme and put together different kinds of stories on that theme. That doesn't sound like something we'd want to listen to on the radio, and it's our show.So usually we just say what we're not. We're not a news show or a talk show or a call-in show. We're not really formatted like other radio shows at all. Instead, we do these stories that are like movies for radio. There are people in dramatic situations. Things happen to them. There are funny moments and emotional moments and—hopefully—moments where the people in the story say interesting, surprising things about it all. It has to be surprising. It has to be fun.

There has been plenty of adventure in the past 30-plus years — broadcasts from Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, Germany, Iceland and almost every one of the 50 states; wonderful performers, little-known and world-renowned; standing ovations and stares of bewilderment. We've missed planes, coped with lost luggage, dodged swooping bats and hungry mosquitoes, plodded through blizzards, and flown by the seat of our pants. Today, A Prairie Home Companion is heard by 4 million listeners each week on more than 600 public radio stations, and abroad on America One and the Armed Forces Networks in Europe and the Far East. Garrison recalls, "When the show started, it was something funny to do with my friends, and then it became an achievement that I hoped would be successful, and now it's a good way of life."

Bob Parlocha's rich, elegant voice is familiar to jazz audiences as host of the highly rated "Dinner Jazz Show" at the former KJAZ.Born and reared in Vallejo, California, Bob learned about jazz from his mother's Count Basie and Duke Ellington records. He grew up listening to former KJAZ owner Pat Henry, broadcasting at that time on KROW, and to Jerry Dean, who used to do a weekly KJAZ show from Vallejo. In high school Bob played tenor and soprano saxophones and flute and sang in road bands.For 10 years jazz remained a hobby while he worked in psychiatric nursing at UCSF, developing interpersonal skills that would serve him well in the music business. After one routine day at the hospital, he heard Pat Henry inviting prospective deejays to submit audition tapes to KJAZ. Bob sent in his tape and Henry ultimately hired him to program Saturday evenings, which eventually led to the Dinner Jazz shift.A sensitive programmer, articulate spokesman for jazz, and astute analyst of the music scene, Bob's master of ceremonies style has enhanced many jazz concerts and fundraisers. His credits include the Gil Evans Orchestra's concert at the Pacific Coast Collegiate Jazz Festival, the UC Berkeley Jazz Festival, Oakland Arts Explosion, Jazz at the Palace, Bay Area Jazz Awards, the San Francisco International KJAZ Festival, and KJAZ host on the SS Norway Jazz Cruises.
