'The Beat' is a weekly mix of jazz, blues and much more. Each week, host David Nicholas plays selections from WCMU's extensive record and CD library, and brings in some of his own favorite albums from home.
The spotlight is Michigan's New Reformation Band. They've traveled the country and the world with classic jazz for close to fifty years. They are part of the 15th Annual Saginaw on Stage Festival on March 9. Music from the NRB and studio time with their founder, Dave Oppermann.
Coming up on The Beat, Andy Martin, Sonny Rollins, Phil Woods, Janis Segal along with a classic from Chick Corea -- blues from B.B. King, Albert King and Guy Davis...and we remember Dennis Edwards, former lead singer from The Temptations!
