British saxophonist and MC Soweto Kinch is not a stranger to WRTI. Soweto has proven to be an extremely versatile musician, creatively fusing straight-ahead jazz with hip hop and spoken word; he always brings insight into the world of music. 

This interview on Friday, June 28th is a precursor to Soweto's appearance at the Kimmel Center’s monthly Sittin’ In session. WRTI's J. Michael Harrison is host of the performance as he celebrates 20 years of radio presence in the Philadelphia region. 

You can find out more about Soweto’s performance and J. Michael Harrison’s anniversary festivities during their chat on Friday at 11 pm.  Information about the July 3rd concert at the Kimmel Center.
