The radio program ”The Duke Ellington Hour” is featured in the ”Ellington on radio & video” section this week and the next.
This program was broadcasted by public radio station WAMU in Washington D.C. every Sunday night in the beginning of the 1980’s. It was put together and presented by Rob Bamberger, who still entertain and enrich us with his program ”Hot Jazz Saturday Night”
It was always a special moment for an Ellington enthusiast to listen to ”The Duke Ellington Hour” particularly since often music, which was not available on records, was played. This was possible thanks to the extraordinary circle of Ellington collectors in and around Washington D.C. In particular, Jack Towers shared a lot with the program.
In the program excerpt (about 15 minutes long), Bamberger presents and plays the reel tape album Duke Ellington Originals.
