Programming on Jazz 91.9 WCLK is made possible in part by support from the West Georgia Jazz Festival, taking place on Saturday, April 27 beginning at 4pm at the Mill Ampitheatre in charming Downtown Villa Rica. Violinist Ken Ford will be the featured artist, with appearances scheduled for DynaGroove and Canelita Sabrosa. The West Georgia Jazz Festival features food and drink as well as other vendors on site. Jazz 91.9 WCLK's S.O.U.L. of Jazz Host Jamal Ahmad will be hosting this event.

This week on The Local Take I speak with marriage coaches Martez and Woodrina Layton about their work with Ronnie and Shamari DeVoe and the creation of Married4Life Walk

The marriage coaches explain that their marriage was in trouble and the tool they used to get back on track was an evening walk, holding hands. 

Join Atlanta's Jazz Station 91.9 WCLK for Jazz At The Movies and the Atlanta premiere of Bolden. Inspired by the life of Buddy Bolden, the first Cornet King of New Orleans, the film re-imagines the compelling, powerful and tragic life of an unsung American hero and the social context in which his revolutionary music was conceived. WCLK's Debb Moore will host this special screening on Wednesday, May 1 at 7:00pm at the Plaza Theatre, 1049 Ponce De Leon Avenue in Atlanta.
