LISTENING IN – Public Radio Series – 1980-84
  • 'Listening In' explores the lives and art of leading jazz musicians in a series of half-hour radio programs.
  • This unique collection of personal portraits serves as an introduction to and celebration of America's great musical art form.
  • Produced in Los Angeles from 1980-1984 by on-air host Bob Rosenbaum, it was broadcast over National Public Radio (NPR) station KCRW-FM in Santa Monica, as well as Australian Broadcasting's ABC-FM network, and independent radio stations.
