Woody Herman was born in 1913 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and passed away in 1987. To help celebrate the 100th year since his birth, Graham Carter of Jazzed Media has just produced a DVD documentary on the career of the great jazz bandleader, clarinetist, and sax player. Graham will be my guest, giving insight into the documentary. You'll also hear many landmark recordings from "The Band That Plays The Blues."  Sunday, November 11, 7 to 8 pm. Join us!
