Again on a day like this I understand why Bob Geldof and the Boomtown Rats came up with their huge hit, I Don’t Like Monday’s. It’s not the story that drove Sir Bob to write the tune but the sentiment of the title; yep today I really Hate Monday’s. There’s just so much to do and not enough time in the day. I know there’s 24-hours ahead, but hey one has to sleep and hour or two too, you know. Nuff complaining, and on with the chores and as the Christine McVie song written for Fleetwood Mac and one of their most endearing songs say’s Don’t Stop it’s on with the day. I hope that yours will be a better one than mine has started.

The streaming/broadcast week and day kicks off with the Jazz Rendezvous with the newest and latest albums sent to us from all corners of the global village showcasing some of the best and largely lesser known jazz, blues, Latin and world jazz musicians of whom many of us have yet to discover. We make it so, here at All Jazz Radio, all day and every day. We follow that with Tony Vasquez’s Latin Perspective from 13h00 to 14h00 C.A.T. Yes, a whole hour of incredible Afro Cuban Latin Jazz by a man whose passion shines through during each of his wonderful programs. I’ve compiled another program of the best and latest, ok then, also some of the golden oldies from the best years of contemporary smooth jazz during the program Take 5 and then some from 2 to 4pm Central African Time and should not be missed. We then cross to Berlin, Germany and host Wolfgang König who will present Jazz Around The World and the subject of his program today is part one of Unusual Instruments in jazz. Join Wolfgang from 16h00 to 17h00 for what will prove to be interesting and an enjoyable discovery of the unusual.
Tomorrow, Tuesday, sees the start of two new items on All Jazz Radio; firstly we will cross to London for a 15-minute chat to the highly knowledgeable and respected journalist and jazz lover Sebastian Scotney who is the founder and editor in chief of the highly authoritative online magazine/blog London Jazz News.
