Tune in on Sunday February 21 for a 12-hour (12pm-12am) Nina Simone Birthday Broadcast!
The legendary Nina Simone was an American singer, songwriter, musician, arranger, and civil rights activist. Her music spanned a broad range of musical styles including classical, jazz, blues, folk, R&B, gospel, and pop. One of the most gifted and eclectic musicians of the twentieth century, Simone bent genres to her will rather than allowing herself to be confined by boundaries. Tune in to hear special shows, interviews, and recordings from the prolific musician as we celebrate her life and musical legacy. Special jazz broadcasts featuring Simone will also air during the jazz shows on Monday, February 22.
Join us on the air at 89.9FM NY or right here at wkcr.org as we celebrate!
