Tune in to Out to Lunch on August 11 from 12-3 PM ET for a brief memorial broadcast of Jess Stacy on what would have been his 113th birthday. Around the time historian Tad Jones discovered Louis Armstrong's real birthday (August 4), Stacy revealed that that he was born on August 11, 1904 and not on August 4, as is still listed in many Jazz references. The program will explore his career from his early recordings with leaders such as Danny Altier, to his extensive recordings with the Benny Goodman Orchestra as well as the numerous other recordings he made with musicians including Bob Crosby, Bud Freeman and Eddie Condon. The show will also feature solo recordings.
