Tales from the far Side 29.04.21 A Serenade to the Cuckoo with "bird-themed" Jazz

On this edition you can listen to "A SERENADE FOR THE CUCKOO"

and an ode to some other feathered companions in Glen Nephin, where I welcome the cuckoo home in her summer residency, welcoming this cheeky and anti-social rambler as a herald of the summer, praising its arrival with some "bird-themed" JAZZ by Claire Daly, the UMO Jazz Orchestra, Quercus, Chris Flegg, Thad Jones, Nnenna Freelon, Kris Davis, Oscar Peterson and others.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.

A day without Jazz is boring!
