Program: Swing Shift 'DCB Jazz
Bruce Oscar hosts the afternoon shift of "All Things Jazz", Monday through Friday from 2 to 6 p.m. on 90.9fm WDCB, as well as "Swing Shift", his own tribute to the WWII swing band era.
One of the most often-asked questions to WDCB is... "What is that 'Friday Song' that Bruce Oscar plays every Friday at 2 p.m.?" The song is â€œHymn to Fridayâ€, sung by the late Oscar Brown Jr. from Chicago. He was an actor, singer, songwriter, playwright, and activist! â€œHymn to Fridayâ€ is from the album Between Heaven and Hell (originally released in April 1962). It was recently reisssued on CD as an import.
