Joe Santangelo: Six Decades Of Rock, R&B And All That Jazz

This Sunday, a special from producers Lee Hay and John Kiesewetter:

Joe Santangelo: Six Decades of Rock, R&B And All That Jazz

Promoter Joe Santangelo tells his favorite stories about Aretha Franklin, Miles Davis, ZZ Top, Ray Charles, New Kids On The Block, Charlie Wilson, Dave Brubeck, the Grateful Dead and many more music superstars, while explaining how the Cincinnati Music Festival (July 27-29) evolved from the old Ohio Valley Jazz Festival at Crosley Field, Riverfront Stadium and Carthage Fairgrounds.

Joe's nephew, Scott Santangelo, has written a new book, The Ohio Valley Jazz Festival – Images of Modern America chronicling the history of the music festival started by Joe's brother, Dino.
