Jazz 91.9 WCLK

This past Saturday morning at eight on WCLK's The Local Take we featured a conversation I had earlier in the Spring with Heather Toney, National Field Director of  Moms Clean Air Force.  Ms. Toney was interested in presenting their research document on the disproportionate way that air pollution impacts our community and heightened concern.

With the rising number of COVOD-19 cases in Florida, the promoter of the Gulf Coast Summer Fest Jazz Edition, originally scheduled for Labor Day weekend in Pensacola, has decided to cancel this year’s festival and is now planning for the 2021 event. All tickets purchased for 2020 will be refunded from where purchased and the 2021 lineup will remain the same as the 2020 published lineup. More information is available at 850-393-3028 or https://www.gulfcoastsummerfestjazzedition.com/

Larry Willis, who worked across genres since the 1960’s, passed in October 2019. But he left a great body of work in the full length release I Fall In Love Too Easily on Highnote. Ironically, his final recording takes place at Rudy Van Gelder’s recording studio where he began his career. The studio is named after the famous sound engineer credited with creating the legendary Blue Note sound.

This week on The Local Take we speak to Congressman David Scott about his office bringing COVID19 Testing to our community.  Saturday, August 8, 9:00 am to 1:00 pm, at Mundy’s Mill High School in Jonesboro, GA. 

To pre-register for testing, visit https://davidscott.house.gov/covid19testing.

There is no cost to be tested. Photo identification such as a driver’s license, state issued ID, or school or work ID must be presented for testing.  Notification of results, on average, will take five to seven days.
