Oct 31, 2016

For teenager Bill Walton, the music (The Grateful Dead, Dylan, Neil Young, etc.) he was hearing and basketball he was playing became one. He explains, “. . .  guys start playing and figuring things out . . .

It’s the same with music.

Sep 12, 2016

The Mayor of the Oasis will be with you  bright and early on Saturday mornings --- every week.

Many years ago, Ed played jazz records on a long-gone Denver radio station and was station manager of his college radio station back in the 1960s.

“For some inexplicable reason, when I was a little kid, my straight-laced Swedish Baptist grandmother had an old '78 of ‘Royal Garden Blues’ by the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, and I’ve been a jazz fan ever since I heard that,” Ed said.
