BET Networks announced this week that this year's "52nd NAACP Image Awards" will air live on Saturday, March 27 at 8 p.m. 

 

Recognized as the nation’s preeminent multicultural awards show from an African-American perspective, the NAACP Image Awards celebrates the outstanding achievements and performances of people of color in the arts and those who promote social justice through their creative work.

 

The production projects of legendary U.K producer/songwriter Simon law are no stranger to many of your music playlists. His work can be heard from a diverse array of artists in the 90s like Soul II Soul, Maurice White(EWF), Maxi Priest, Maysa, Chante Moore, Lucky Dube and so many others. His 2017 solo album Look To The Sky, which featured many of his cohorts from those days of yore, was a staple on my show, The S.O.U.L Of Jazz.

Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by support from Joe By The Pound Coffee Company. Joe By The Pound Coffee Company Company is a veteran and locally-owned company that offers custom brands of coffee. Joe By The Pound offers other coffee products including Java Jam and Java Rub. More information is available at joebythelb.com or at 404-246-9772. Joe By The Pound--Hearty, Healthy, Happy.

2020 was very good for Phil Denny with Billboard’s  Top 10 Lifted which followed his #1 Feel Alright which featured guitarist David P. Stevens.  Tough Get Goin’ is an uptempo song that may reflect the mood of us all after a year we won’t soon forget.

 This week on The Local Take, I'm speaking with Economy Jackson, the Asset Building Director with the United Way of Greater Atlanta. She will tell us about the 15th Anniversary of EITC Awareness Day, January 29, 2021. I've never heard of this day. EITC stands for Earned Income Tax Credit (EITC) Awareness.  

The great South African trombonist and composer Jonas Gwangwa, who was an ambassador for his country's music around the globe and an advocate against apartheid at home, died today. Gwangwa's death was announced in a statement published on the web site of the presidency of the Republic of South Africa. He was 83 years old.

BET announces the linear television premiere of the hit BET+ Original Series, “Bigger,” executive produced by Will Packer and Will Packer Media, beginning Wednesday, January 27 at 10:30 PM ET/9:30 PM CT on BET.
