FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE! 8PM 4 SEPT 2015 - The Jukka Perko "Avara" Trio

The 'Avara Trio' is led by the superb alto-saxophonist Jukka Perko, accompanied by two of Finland's finest guitarists, Teemu Viinikainen and Jarmo Saari.    Perko - www.jukkaperko.com - has made his mark previously on Australia in different ensemble formations at different music festivals, including Wangaratta Jazz Festival, and has previously been presented on Artsound's "Friday Night Live". Jukka Perko's interpretations of Finnish hymns with soulful sincerity and simplicity have deeply touched European audiences for a whole decade and his albums have become landmarks.  In June they performed at the Embassy of Finland and we were there to capture the concert.

Produced and presented by Chris Deacon OAM.  FNL is sponsored by B2B, Canberra's leading business and government magazine.

"NEW ORLEANS CALLING" - 4PM Sat 29 August 2015

With such great response from the first airing last week, we present an encore airing of "After the Flood," the story of community, from WWOZ New Orleans.

Ten years ago, there was a storm, and then there was a flood, and they changed New Orleans forever. Many stories from that time have been told, but not this one: how WWOZ went off the air and could have been lost forever, if not for the efforts of hundreds of different people who loved the music and culture of New Orleans. And we’re letting those people tell the story themselves, on this special episode of New Orleans Calling.  Hosted by George Ingmire (WWOZ New Orleans).
