HPPR hosts & contributors
An HPPR holiday tradition continues Thanksgiving Eve! It's "Reflections,"a special program featuring classic jazz and pop standards from the 1930s-1960s. This is the fourth consecutive year that we've offered this show on the night before Thanksgiving to begin the holiday weekend.
This year's show features three artists - John Coletrane, Ella Fitzgerald and Dizzy Gillespie. Hear the jazz greats, along with Chet Baker, Billie Holiday, Count Basie - and a few surprises.
Join host Mark Haslett Wednesday evening from 7 til midnight CT.
Kaomi is an award-winning journalist whose love for telling stories began during her childhood in Minnesota, where she spent countless hours writing and illustrating "books" with reams of paper requested from her parents. These days, her focus is decidedly on non-fiction, believing that some of the best stories to be told are true. Her work for the WSHU Public Radio Group is foused on Fairfield County, but she is heard regularly on all of our frequencies as well as on NPR's Morning Edition and All Things Considered. She's also reported for Planet Money, The World, Marketplace, Latino USA and WNYC's Studio 360. Kaomi is a graduate of Columbia University's Graduate School of Journalism.
