KSPC DJ celebrates 25 years with special shows

In December, KSPC’s DJ Wal will commemorate 25 years since his first broadcast on Claremont Colleges radio station 88.7 FM with a special series of his jazz-centric show, “Bop, Drop and Roll.”

The anniversary shows will take place every Saturday between 3 and 5 p.m. On December 3, Wal will host “short song Saturday,” will all tunes clocking in at under four minutes; December 10 is “string Saturday,” featuring songs by guitar-led combos; on December 17 he will host “super speed Saturday” with songs over 250 beats per minute; December 24 is “second spin Saturday,” featuring sets of two different versions of the same song; and on December 31 he will host “saxophone Saturday,” with, you guessed it, tunes from sax-led combos.

Tracks will be chosen primarily from an array of jazz giants, including John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Wynton Marsalis, Dave Brubeck, Thelonious Monk, and Charles Mingus, but will also include more obscure artists.
