Willis Conover: new biography of the VOA jazz DJ

Terence Ripmaster has published a new biography of longtime Voice of America jazz DJ Willis Conover. Conover's broadcasts were heard around the world (though not in America, due to Congressional restrictions) and brought jazz into Eastern bloc countries where the music was a precious commodity. Look for a Night Lights show this autumn featuring an interview with Ripmaster and more; in the meantime, you can check out our previous program of musical tributes to jazz jocks, "Jivin' With the DJs".
