Last Call to Celebrate it's 25th Anniversary


This month Last Call celebrates 25 years on KIOS.

To celebrate on January 30th, host Chris Cooke will feature new music from the Sun Ra Arkestra. The legendary band's latest release is Swirling. Additionally new music from the band Cosmic Vibrations with vocalist Dwight Trible will be in the spotlight. Their new recording is Pathways and Passages. Listeners can look forward to vintage music from John Coltrane and Miles Davis as well in what is sure to be a special evening of music.

The Last Call started on KIOS in January 1996.   Since that time Chris Cooke has been the host for this late night jazz program.  It is one of the few radio programs that present the very best of adventuresome jazz-music which generally falls outside of the mainstream of the genre, but includes some of the most creative and innovative music ever recorded by musicians anywhere.  The Last Call host brings along with him several decades of experience and insight as he steps into the studio to present each program.   

Tune in January 30th at 9pm for our special Last Call 25th year anniversary program on KIOS-FM.
