All Bird, All Day

Tune in to WKCR 89.9 FM for the Charlie Parker Birthday Broadcast.

August 29 is Charlie Parker’s birthday, and the good people at WKCR 89.9 FM are playing his music all day for the annual birthday broadcast (which comes at the tail end of the joint Parker/Lester Young birthday sessions).

Tune in, turn on, and build your library with the Complete Savoy and Dial Recordings, an essential jazz recording.
