8 hours ago

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by support from St. James Live, 3220 Butner Road in Atlanta(30331). St. James Live Presents Smooth Sundays with Contemporary Jazz Guitarist Chris Standring on Sunday, September 23. WCLK listeners are very familiar with Standring's guitar style, filled with heavy 1970's-style musical nuances and dream-like ambience. Standring has recorded with Bebe & Cece Winans and toured with Rick Braun. Doors open at 6pm and showtime is at 7pm.

Support for WCLK programming comes from The Atlanta Business League, presenting their 34th Annual Super Tuesday Conference happening Tuesday October 2 from 8am until 4pm at the Atlanta Marriot Marquis Hotel Downtown. The conference features informative, interactive self-help business enhancement workshops, the Annual  Women of Vision Breakfast and the Super Tuesday Awards Luncheon, recognizing African American women entrepreneurs and professionals. This year's conference theme is One Great Day: The Power of The Woman.

This week on The Local Take I speak with Toni Henson founder and executive director of The Atlanta Black Theatre Festival.  The Festival is scheduled from October 3 - 6 at the Porter Sanford Performing Arts Center.   Toni shares with us how she came to establish the Atlanta Black Theatre Festival, her love of theatre and how the festival continues to grow. When asked which is the not to be missed production, Toni explains that "you should pick a day, not a play."
