George Eldred has lived most of his life in Princeton, Kentucky except for a 15 year stint of studying music in Sewanee, Tennessee and Lawrence, Kansas and working in camera and photofinishing shops in the Washington, DC area. George first went on the air around the 4th grade when the local station in Princeton used to get elementary school students to read children's books from the library on the air. He grew up listening to the old tube-type radios: clear-channel AM stations let him "travel" over more than half the country. During college he hung out at the "big time" 10 Watt FM station and subbed in on occasion. For some time he volunteered during on-air fundraising, drawing from his own classical music collection. He first joined the WKMS staff from 1994-1998 producing a classical music show. In 2001 he started producing Café Jazz one night a week and in 2005 began hosting Commonwealth Classics. Now he hosts Café Jazz on Mondays and Wednesdays.
We're opening the vault... Join us at 11 p.m. Monday through Thursday nights as we share programs from our jazz archives. It could be productions by Todd Hill, Brian Clardy, Andy "Jazzman" Smith, George Eldred, the late-great Colonel Tom Morgan, or an unexpected surprise. Jazz goes local late nights on WKMS with Jazz Vault, classical Cafe Jazz favorites, introduced and produced by George Eldred.
Energize your evening with two hours of mainstream jazz on Café Jazz. George Eldred gets the week started on Mondays and again Thursdays (at 10 pm), Todd Hill picks up the jazz on Tuesdays, and Dr. Brian Clardy takes over Wednesdays. Whether you're new to jazz or an aficionado, Café Jazz is the place to satisfy that fix.
