Marietta McCarty joins Jazz Messenger Brian Keena in the WTJU studio, two longtime friends talking together about putting to good use—right now—the lessons found in the book, “Leaving 1203.”
Let’s feast on main courses of generosity, courage, and sacrifice as we relish desserts of relaxation, joy, and simple pleasures. Yes, holidays—any day—can be shared with those we love, if we’re creative.
Yes, adversity can come with silver linings, if we use our imaginations. What amazing evidence of surviving and even thriving, despite unimaginable hardship, Marietta uncovered in her grandmother’s dresser and in her father’s messenger bag. Marietta’s most valuable keepsake, after three months spent emptying her childhood home, remains this constant reminder: “Invest all the way. Relationships last long, longer than time’s reach.”
Brian will spin tunes featured in Leaving 1203. May these two hours offer camaraderie and hope for the newest of new years in 2021.
Tune in on Friday morning from 10am to noon to WTJU 91.1 FM or wtju.net.
