A Cole Festival (11/11/17)

 

By night, they’re the toast of the town, entertaining New York’s upper crust at the Café Carlyle. But by day, John & Jessica entertain their radio listeners from their own deluxe living room. This week, John pays tribute to his biggest influence in his jazz career, Nat King Cole. He also tips his hat to the most famous of the Carlyle’s headliners, Bobby Short, and shines the spotlight for a short while on the inimitable Dave Frishberg.

Autumn Upstate (10/7/17)

 

North of the big city, by a small lake upstate, John & Jessica settle into their Deluxe Cabin to enjoy some of the last warm weather of the year. To go along with the good weather, they create good food, good conversation, and of course, good music.

The Familiar and the Obscure (9/30/17)

 

On a late September day, John & Jessica dig through their record collection, finding favorites, as usual. But as they dig deeper, they find some more obscure gems and share with us such excellent artists as Beverly Kenney, Connie Evingson, Bob Dorough, and others. Some things old and some things new, or so they seem to you.

Songs for the Equinox (9/23/17)

 

Saturday, September 23, is the first full day of autumn. It began the previous day, at the moment of the Autumnal Equinox, at 4:02 PM, EDT. Around that time, John & Jessica find themselves back in their Manhattan apartment, having returned from their Deluxe Cabin by the lake. With their daughter back at college and the baseball playoffs about to begin, they’re able to feel fall in the air as they get together for another session of Radio Deluxe.

Live Music on the Lake (9/16/17)

 

John & Jessica are at their Deluxe Cabin by the lake this week. John wants to find a quiet place where he can play his guitar and sing and talk to you, without disturbing Jessica, who’s working in the cabin. So he sits in the chair on the dock. It’s the perfect spot on this perfect September day, as John plays eight songs live and calls several more on record.
