Last Call 26th Anniversary Program to air January 29th


Last Call host Chris Cooke will celebrate the program's anniversary with a special broadcast on January 29th.

The two hour program will feature music from John Coltrane's previously unreleased live performance of "A Love Supreme", recorded live in Seattle, Washington, in 1965. The recording features Coltrane and his band at their best, taking the music of the historic recording to an entirely different level, with inspired spiritual fire and relentless creativity.

Also on tap will be selections from jazz luminaries Miles Davis, Steve Raybine, Albert Ayler, Kamasi Washington,  Patricia Barber,  the Sun Ra Arkestra, and more.

Last Call started on KIOS in January 1996. Evolving over the decades, the program has become one of the few jazz programs regionally to feature progressive, avant-garde, electric and groove oriented jazz.

Tune in to the Last Call for a special 26th Anniversary program on January 29th, 9-11pm on KIOS-FM and on the web on
