Sunday Night Jazz Showcase

Program #185 (September 24 at 8:00 p.m.)

California's Big Bad Voodoo Daddy are an old-school swing-and-jump blues outfit who first came to prominence in the 1990s as one of the main progenitors of the neo-swing revival. Along with similarly-inclined neo-swing acts like Squirrel Nut Zippers and the Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy helped to revive big-band music and popularize swing dancing for the MTV generation and beyond.

Join WMKY and host Doug Chatham at 7 tonight (9/22) for a collection of bird songs, including “I Want a New Duck” by Weird Al Yankovic, “My Cousin Married a Chicken” by Trigger and Some Dudes Named Roy, and “Surfin' Bird” by The Trashmen.
