Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK

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 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 Local Take: Students Without Mothers

Jan 23, 2021

  This week on WCLK's The Local Take(Saturday 8:00am), I want to spotlight a non-profit organization in our community--Students Without Mothers. Their mission is to assist high-school girls who have lost their mothers with furthering their education. I was joined by Students Without Mothers Founder Mary Torrance Williams, as well as a student who has benefitted from their outreach.
