“Riverwalk Jazz” has graced the airwaves of public radio stations for 25 years. This week, the show is coming to an end.
The show has focused on jazz in the first half of the 20th century. Each episode celebrates a theme or person, such as Hollywood jazz, Ma Rainey or even jazz and civil rights.
For each episode, host David Holt told stories of the time and trumpeter Jim Cullum and his band played the music.
WABE’s Lois Reitzes spoke with Cullum about putting “Riverwalk Jazz” to rest.
