On the final show of 2022, we celebrate the titans of the Kansas City scene throughout the hour starting with guitarist Rod Fleeman with a live cut from his time at the fabled KC institution the Green Lady Lounge. From there we hear from the king of KC in Bobby Watson then Adam Larson and Christopher Burnett. In between, we hear from icons including Marilyn Maye and Charlie Parker. Thanks for all the love in 2022 and cheers to 2023. We are ready to roll. Until next time, dig the jazz, my friends.
