KKCR FEATURED PROGRAMMER
JOHN GORDON
JAZZ WITH JOHN ~
TUESDAYS 6-8pm


Aloha, I am "Jazz With John" on Tuesday evenings from 6 to 8 on KKCR.

I was born and raised in and near Kansas City, Missouri; and I graduated from the University of Missouri at Columbia. After graduation I went in the Navy for two years and after that went to work for the FAA in Kansas City as an engineer and eventually a manager. In 1964 I was selected for an FAA job in Honolulu and I spent most of my carrier in Hawaii. I did take about 22 months off to work as an audio engineer in a major recording studio in St. Louis, but was homesick for Hawaii and came back to my old job. Kansas City is home to many jazz greats and I was able to experience in person many of the local and national performers. I saw most of the Jazz at the Philharmonic concerts and also saw a lot of the jazz greats in small clubs throughout Kansas City. While in the Navy in Long Beach, California we spent many a Sunday afternoon at Howard Rumsey's Light House in Hermosa Beach. Also at that time they had a public radio station in Long Beach KLON (now KKJZ) that played mostly jazz all day; In other words I grew up with jazz.

I have a confession; I always wanted to be a jazz DJ and even "played" DJ when I was a kid using my "state of the art" tape recorder. I also rigged up my old Crosby radio for headphones so I could listen at night without my folks knowing. My favorite program was "Moon Glow with Martin". Dick Martin was his name and was jazz DJ that broadcast at midnight from New Orleans via WWL, a clear channel AM station that could be heard up and down the Mississippi River valley at night. Friends say I sort of have the same style he did—not sure about that. I also played saxophone but never considered myself a musician always needed the charts with the notes written. I played in some small dance bands in high school and in the 1970 to 1980 period played in big bands in Honolulu mostly for our own enjoyment. Interestingly, one of these bands was led by Jack Darvill—the headmaster at Kamehameha schools at that time—we rehearsed in their band room on Monday night and called ourselves the "Monday Night Band". Some of the great players I played with were Gabe Baltazar and Eric Miyashiro.

Not sure how long I have been doing Jazz with John but think about 7 years or so. I really enjoying doing the show and bringing great jazz to Kauai. I am on each Tuesday and I alternate with two great jazz DJ's on Monday night—Richard Fernandez and Cousin Rich.
