Mike Jacobi and I met backstage at the 47th

Annual Monterey Jazz Festival. I was the master of ceremonies on the Night Club

stage and Paula West was on stage performing. Mike Jacobi is good friends with

Paula and he slipped backstage to check out her performance from the wings. We

met and talked for a moment and he invited me on his Saturday show at the only

jazz station in Carmel,

KRML 1410 AM.



We had a great time talking about all the things that are

happening with me and jazz! I used to broadcast on KRML myself. When I worked

the Saturday overnight show for 88.1 FM KLON in Los Angeles, KRML used to pick

up the feed from KLON just about the time that my show came on the air. So many

people in Carmel and Monterey already used to listen to my radio

program. It was nice to have an opportunity to get back to Carmel and be in touch with the jazz

community once again.



Mike has a two hour show there at KRML from 1pm – 3pm once a week and it is

called “Raising the Standards”. It is a show where he does interviews and also

plays the standards. Standards by everyone you can think of and not just the

ones that we are so accustomed to hearing over and over again. The interview

was about twenty minutes long and we had a great time on the air. When I get a

copy of the interview, I will post it for you so you can check it out!
