Join host Bob Craig to hear some well-known "jazz characters" get the Big Band Jazz treatment, including "Killer Joe," "Freddy Freeloader," and others. Also, in the birthday file this week are Billy Eckstine and Louie Bellson.

Bob joined WRTI's on-air staff in 2005. His well-rounded radio career began in 1963 as a studio engineer at WBZ in Boston. Throughout the '70s, he was an announcer and programmer at Hartford's WDRC and Boston's WHDH.
