Fill A Shoebox and Help the Homeless

It’s amazing how much a simple note or gift of encouragement can mean to individuals who are in need.   For the second year,Jazz 91.9 WCLK in partnership with the United Way of Metropolitan Atlanta, encourages individuals to join in on creating personal care packages for Atlanta area homeless women and children during the 2013 United Way Shoebox Project.

Victor Goines is one of Jazz music's most acclaimed and prolific horn players, his work appearing from Lincoln Center to Hollywood soundtracks.  He stopped by The Midday Jazz Swing with Gary Motley, who appeared with him at the Emory University Schwartz Center Friday night.  They chatted with Nicole Sweeney and caught WCLK listeners up with what they'll be doing at their performance.

Atlanta is a second home for Goines, and tonight's jam session should delight and challenge the serious jazz fans in attendance.

News that jazz-fusion legend Donald Byrd had passed went through the media with a shiver yesterday, with record labels confirming by late afternoon that Byrd was gone.  Jazz 91.9 WCLK plays Donald Byrd, always has.  You can expect to hear Donald Byrd closely in the days ahead on the station.  His memory will live forever on The Jazz of The City.

Here are a couple of stories about Byrd from The Guardian and Pitchfork.

Jesse Fischer and Soul Cycle have become an Atlanta favorite in recent years.  In advance of his Saturday night performance at Apache Cafe, Jesse called Nicole Sweeney from the road to talk about his records, the performance, and his appreciation of WCLK.  Saturday night's performance will be hosted by WCLK's S.O.U.L. of Jazz Host Jamal Ahmad.

It is important to offer communities easy solutions to protect the environment and, Jazz 91.9 WCLK is thrilled to provide pathways to improve sustainability.  For the third year, Jazz 91.9 WCLK in partnership with Clark Atlanta University, the Atlanta University Center Consortium Institutions and Environmental Protection Agency will rally individuals to collect paper products, plastics,  cans, cardboard, glass, cell phones and computer monitors for AUC Recyclemania Day.   AUC Recyclemania Day takes place on Saturday, February 9 from 10:00 a.m. until  2:00 p.m.

Toni Love is an author, educator and hair loss specialist.  Join her Saturday, February 2 at 7am on WCLK for a look at the factors causing hair loss, and the proper approach to this condition from both the client and the stylist perspective.

Toni is joined by both a hair stylist trained to treat hair loss, and a client suffering from hair loss, for a frank discussion about what to do and what not to do.  Should you use hair extensions?  At what point do you need to treat your hair loss as a medical, rather than an personal appearance issue?
