KNKX Public Radio is pleased to announce that veteran journalist, producer and educator Florangela Davila is the station’s next news director, effective Sept. 9. She succeeds Erin Hennessey, who has led the KNKX newsroom (formerly KPLU) for 23 years.
It seems the timing was just right for Catherine Russell’s third KNKX studio session. Her new album, Alone Together , had risen to the top of the jazz charts. Also, the just-ended fund drive had all of us in the mood to celebrate.
Jazz Northwest celebrates the release of new albums ranging from the Sixties to the teens from sessions that took place in Seattle. A new gatefold double LP set recorded from live radio broadcasts in 1966-1967 features The Cannonball Adderley Quintet at The Penthouse, a jazz club in Pioneer Square during the Sixties.
