Prairie seniors, Ryan Neubauer and Brody Joens were recently featured on KCCK 88.3. The radio station has been featuring an hour-long “Guest DJ” program to showcase high school jazz programs from the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area. Each of these groups also participated earlier this year in KCCK’s Corridor Jazz Project, where Prairie Jazz I recorded with jazz vocalist Eddie Piccard.
Ryan and Brody were interviewed “virtually” by KCCK’s Dennis Green and selected a playlist of music for the hour. The music they selected represented a great variety of jazz history and the different personalities of the performers. If you didn’t catch them live, you can visit the KCCK webpage to listen to the archived recordings from each school. Click here for the KCCK interview.
