Dennis Owsley Seeking Recent Recordings for Updated Jazz History of St. Louis

SOURCE: Published:
Dennis Owsley, host of the Jazz Unlimited program airing at 9:00 p.m. Sunday nights on KWMU (90.7), is preparing to celebrate his 30th year of continuous jazz broadcasting on the station, and to do so, he needs a bit of help from local St. Louis musicians.

Owsley, who also wrote the book City of Gabriels: The History of Jazz in St. Louis 1895-1973, is updating his multi-part 1986 radio documentary about the history of jazz in St. Louis, with the revised version to air on Jazz Unlimited during April and the first part of May. Having donated his extensive CD collection to Webster University a few years back, he's now looking for recent recordings from St. Louis musicians to include in the final episode of the broadcast.

Musicians who are interested in having their work considered are asked to send CDs to him in care of KWMU, 3651 Olive St., St. Louis, MO 63108. Alternatively, you can send MP3 files (or a link to a legal download site) directly to Owsley at jazz @ stlpublicradio.org.
