Wednesdays: African-American Music Showcase

As part of KXCI Community Radio's celebration of Black History Month, we are proud to announce the return of the African-American Music Showcase, each Wednesday in February from 5 to 6pm.

The first showcase on Wednesday, February 7th features a one-hour special on the legendary Fats Waller. His songs, piano style and on-stage antics helped make him one of the first African-American superstars. He was a clear influence on better remembered stars like Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington and Thelonious Monk.

Meet Fats Waller for the first time when KXCI airs "Fats Waller: If You Got To Ask" Wednesday, February 7th from 5 to 6pm.

Future Wednesday profiles in February include Buddy Guy, Chuck Berry, and Aaron Neville's tribute to soul music.
