October 21 is the 100th anniversary of the birth of one of the giants of American Music:

John Birks Gillespie, better known as Dizzy Gillespie.

He was a pioneer with TWO forms of Jazz: Bebop and Afro-Cuban Jazz.

Plus, he was as a superb trumpeter, and a verastile all around entertainer (he appeared on The Muppet Show).

We'll celebrate his birthday with classic sides with Bird, Max Roach, Cab Calloway, and more!

Tune in from 1 to 2 p.m. (CST) on 91.7 FM (or koop.org) on October 21.
