For nearly 40 years, Professor Bebop has helped kick off the weekend with a generous helping of groovy Rhythm and Blues. Tonight, from 11pm-1am, catch his final Friday night show.
Dave Rogers, aka Professor Bebop, has been combining wit, deep research, and a true love of musical expression into his iconic show Professor Bebop.
Last year, for example, Bebop took listeners through the music of Memphis, going year by year, from 1954 through 1984. Each week packed with not only incredible music but wonderful commentary and context.
So if you’ve been listening all your life or just need to get up and move, tune in this evening for, “two hours of jump, jive and a taste of the weird!”
Starting next Friday, Jan 20th, Dave Donahue will debut Sloppy Seconds, a mix of jazz, blues, and soul in the place of Professor Bebop. Bebop isn’t leaving the airwaves though, you’ll still be able to catch Professor Bebop in his Tuesday morning timeslot from 9am-12pm.
