12th Street Jump

Saturday at 6:00 PM
  • Hosted by Pete Weber

12th Street in Kansas City: that’s where Count Basie tickled the ivories at the Reno Club and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues, where cats like Lester Young, Mary Lou Williams, Buster Smith and the Bird lit up a strip of clubs, juke joints, and honky-tonks with their brand new sound.

12th Street Jump brings back that great era of Kansas City jazz on public radio’s weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam. Host Pete Weber, musical director Joe Cartwright, vocalists David Basse and Eboni Fondren, bassist Tyrone Clark and drummer Mike Warren and some very special guests are heard weekly on over 100 public radio stations all over the country and online.
