What Would Kenny Play?

Mark Weber

  Thu. 12/25 12p: The late Kenny Davern loved doing radio at KUNM -- He was my co-host on the Noon jazz show from 2002  (his first guest appearance was July 11) through 2006 when he got away from us in December. He and his wife Elsa had moved to Sandia Park in 2001 and  whenever he wasn't on tour performing around the world he'd be on the Thursday show.  Today's theme will be: WHAT WOULD KENNY PLAY? We'll play records Kenny loved and play some of the records Kenny made himself: One of the world's great jazz clarinetists, we were fortunate indeed to have him among us those years. 


Mark Weber grew up on the outskirts of the megalopolis Los Angeles and wasn't suppose to listen to jazz.
