KCHO Sunday Nite

KCHO Sunday Nite premiered in the fall of 1986 as a tip of the hat to the older era of radio that I remembered as a youth. This show was a combination of jazz, comedy, radio drama, science fiction, studio guests, and live jazz performances all produced from within the confines of our small Studio B in the basement of the CSU, Chico Merriam Library.

December 6, 1987 - "Live Jazz Nite - CSU, Chico Jazz Ensembles I & II"

Featured Guest: Ron Cole

This is only Live Jazz Nite that survived, and it was actually a tape delay! Here the CSU, Chico Jazz Ensembles I and II from their November 14, 1987 performance under the direction of Dr. Rick Winslow and Dan Kinkle. Featuring many great local Chico musicians including Greg D'Augelli, Barbara D'Augelli, Alan Ginter, Vince Prudente, Scott Cadell, and of course yours truly. The remainder of the show is filled with swinging Christmas Jazz. Plus. Ron stopped by with a favorite record of his to share.

The surviving recording captured 2:34:47 of this evening's show from 9:00pm until 11:35 pm.
