|CSM President Mike Claire on the Future of KCSM FM|
|Fri, Mar 24th from 4:30PM - 12:00AM
Dear KCSM Listener,
My name is Mike Claire and I am the President of College of San Mateo. I am also an avid jazz fan and a fellow KCSM-FM supporter. In addition, I was a professional musician at one time, and I have played in many jazz combos over the years.
I share these details with you because I share your passion for jazz. I understand fully what makes KCSM-FM unique, and I appreciate the trust and the support that you have placed with KCSM-FM. That is why I am writing to you directly.
There have been some recent news articles about proposed changes at KCSM-FM. I want to assure you that there are no plans to sell KCSM-FM, change the genre, or remove the remaining on-air personalities.Read The Full Letter

Muldrow Plays Mingus
Georgia Anne Muldrow is a multi-instrumentalist, producer, and vocalist entrenched in the alternative r&b scene, but she was born out of jazz family. Her father Ronald was Eddie Harris’ guitarist Ronald Muldrow (making Harris her Godfather) and her mother is singer Rickie Byers Beckwith (Roland Hanna and Pharaoh Sanders.) Georgia also knew Alice Coltrane, who gave her the name Jytoni, which she uses as her “jazz alias.” Muldrow joins pianist Jason Moran and his cohorts at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C. for a program featuring her own original music and their interpretations of music by Charles Mingus.
|Piano Jazz With Marian McPartland|
|Wed, Mar 29th from 9:00PM - 10:00PM
One of the most original and provocative musicians in jazz, pianist Mose Allison (1927 – 2016) was heavily influenced by the blues. The Mississippi native drew inspiration from Sonny Boy Williamson, Fats Waller, Louis Armstrong, and Thelonious Monk to create jazz flavored by the blues, along with tastes of his own sardonic wit. On this 1988 Piano Jazz, Allison opens with one of his typically witty tunes, Someone’s Going to Have to Move. He and McPartland join forces on an old classic, Your Red Wagon.
