Guest DJ: Paul Keller And South Eastern Michigan Jazz Association Honor WEMU

 Bassist Paul Keller is beloved word-wide whether touring with John Pizzarelli, appearing at festivals in California, Canada or Monaco or recording in the finest studios.  

WEMU was able to snag Paul for an hour to hang out in our studio as a Guest DJ for our 40 Years of Jazz celebration.  Paul brought in his favorite Oscar Peterson, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington and Louis Armstrong albums and shared thoughts on the swinging magic within the album covers.   Of course, he shared warm stories about his musical mentors, friendships and inspirations.   Paul will share more stories on Monday, October 30th and great music when The Paul Keller Orchestra and The Southeastern Michigan Jazz Association team up at The Zal Gaz Grotto in Ann Arbor to honor WEMU’s 40 Years of Jazz.

Linda Yohn simply cannot remember a day in her life that was not filled with music. Her early life was full of changes as the daughter of a well-respected cancer research scientist who moved his family about, but one thing was constant: the love of music instilled by her mother. So, when it seemed life was too hard to bear, young Linda would listen to her radio, play her guitar, dance her heart out and sing at the top of her lungs. So, it isn’t so strange that “older” Linda still does all those things!
