Best Radio Show (Music) St. Louis 2013 - All Soul, No Borders
Never mind the calendar; the week ends with Sunday. With Monday hot on Sunday's heels, All Soul, No Borders (10 p.m. till midnight) calms that work-week dread with a genuine jazz show. Host Joshua Weinstein truly educates through trivia and clever quips on each selection. Let's dismiss the classics, or maybe the same five jazz bands everyone likes, and dive deeper into current trends in the experimental. Sure, the likes of Sun Ra and Ornette Coleman are referenced, but you'll find new acts like Matthew Shipp and Thollem McDonas busting out real free-jazz in schizophrenic sets. Like all things worth a damn, All Soul, No Borders comes on after dark, and Weinstein guides ears through artifacts and new gems alike for the sake of borderless sound.
