Our dear jazz leader for more than a dozen years, Nick Francis.

He's been the KNKX Music Director since 2005, and this summer Nick Francis wraps up a stellar run on 88.5 as he enters a well-earned retirement. Before we let him go, Nick is covering for Abe Beeson on The New Cool this week.

Nick has been an enthusiastic supporter of this show since we debuted almost two years ago, and his passion for electronic music and DJ remixes have added a much appreciated digital edge to our collection of envelope-pushing musicians.

You can follow his continuing musical adventures (post-retirement) on the streaming service he runs, quietmusic.com. A million thanks, Nick. Bon Voyage!

The New Cool airs Saturdays from 3 to 5pm, usually hosted by Abe Beeson and produced by KNKX Public Radio in Seattle, Wash.
