On this week's episode, we learn a little bit about one of the rising young stars in the music industry...Sherma Andrews as she prepares to perform in Syracuse this coming Sunday February 16th at the Sheraton Syracuse University. Sherma is the latest guest on my "Take Ten" segment where you'll learn a variety of interesting tidbits including who she would want to take a cross country drive with...hint hint...he's the leader of the free world. Enjoy!
This week, we venture down to midtown Manhattan to the place known as "The Jazz Corner Of The World." A jazz club that has hosted the best of the best since it opened in 1949. Come join me as we explore the wonderful world of Birdland.
