On this edition I'd like to explore the music and vision of Charlie Parker and Lester Young, two different figures in the history of Jazz, who also had very much in common and influenced generations of young musicians, exploring
PARKER OR PRES, or both and all magic inbetween and beyond.
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.
