WMPG Celebrates Jazz Legend Charlie Parker’s 100th Birthday

Ushering in the Be Bop era, with his improvisational lyrical crisp alto saxophone, Charlie Parker’s impact on jazz reverberates to this day.  “Bird’s” songs are timeless.  August 29 would have been his 100th birthday & to honor this giant of jazz WMPG DJ’s will be celebrating Parker’s music the week of August 24.  Here are the shows serving up slices of Bird.
