I received an email from Edgar at WGBH radio 89.7 FM in Massachsetts. I get a lot of pitches and press releases, but as DevraDoWrite is my personal platform, and I make no pretense to be an unbiased journalist when writing here, I feel free to ignore everything that is of no personal interest to me; that includes all “smooth jazz.” A lot of people waste their time pitching me because they do not take the time to do the research, but Edgar clearly knows that I am a extreme fan of Sonny Rollins, and he didn’t push. Here’s what he wrote:
I thought this might be of interest, either for your blog or just for your own personal enjoyment. The legendary Sonny Rollins–who has played and recorded with the likes of Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Art Blakey–will be a guest on Open Source with Christopher Lydon, this Thursday, April 5 at 7pm. The show airs on WGBH 89.7 FM in New England and streams live worldwide at wgbh.org/listen. Tune in and hear the insights of the one and only Saxophone Colossus.
That’s this Thursday, 7 PM Eastern time — I’ll be tuned in via computer here.
