Enjoying not new music

Usually I scope out a bunch of new tunes every few weeks so I can keep my radio show, Beef Jerky Time, fresh and cool and interesting. But I haven't had time to sit down and research good new music for ages. My library is in pretty good shape though, so I can still put together good shows "from the stacks." Here are two recent ones--an all-jazz show 2 weeks ago, and a "soundtrack" edition last week. All streaming live on WVEW, Weds nites from 7-8pm Eastern.
