'Fats Waller' on the radio after Nov 18

 "Fats Waller: The Joint Is Jumpin,'" an hour-long radio program will be broadcast on many public radio affiliates nationwide starting Thursday, November 18  (through the Jazz Satellite Network/WFMT). I wrote the script, so I can tell you that Waller's hits including "Ain't Misbehavin'", "Honeysuckle Rose," "Your Feets Too Big" and "Handfull of Keys" are performed by entertainer Ben Vereen, singers Carla Cook and Alan Harris, guitarist Doug Wamble, pianist Ehud Asherie and an octet led by saxophonist Andy Farber; Wendell Pierce is host. The program will be archived http://jalc.org/jazzcast/archive09.asp.
