Jabari Greer will Co-Host a Jazz Radio Show


LINK



quote:

Jabari Greer will give New Orleanians another look at his creative side Monday as he co-hosts “Jazz from the French Market,” a show on WWOZ-90.7 from 4 p.m. to 7pm.



quote:

Greer said. “I’ve done things such as writing and shooting movies and I’ve done things to push myself creatively. I think this is an avenue in which it’s a great outlet for musical expression and to really put yourself out there and explain who you are and explain your love for life.


quote:

“I remember the day that I signed (with New Orleans), it was a Wednesday. That night a good friend of mine took me to Frenchmen Street and I remember the life of the music on Frenchmen Street, it was incredible. I looked to him and said, ‘is this a Wednesday? This is a Wednesday night in which this is happening?’” Greer said. “I remember when I was in Buffalo, I would search weeks ahead of time for any live music events that were happening, and now living in New Orleans, all you have to do is go down the street.


quote:

For this upcoming endeavor, Greer will write two blogs, before and after co-hosting, for the station’s website, wwoz.org.


quote:

In my 15 years at the station, we have never had a football player come on and do something like this."



Sounds like he really likes being in New Orleans and glad he's taking part in the community. I think he gets more grief than he should from the fans as he's been one of our more consistent CBs the past five years.

I always change the channel after The Blues Eclectic is done at 4. I like jazz, but I have to be in the mood for it. Still cool of him, though. I'm pretty sure that's the one that Harry Shearer hosts sometimes.
