(Air Dates: March 17-23) This week on 12th Street Jump we celebrate the birthday of Nat King Cole with our special guest Lonnie McFadden. On the funny side, Dr. Pearl gives Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh a piece of her mind, we sing Lonnie's Blues, and "All That Trash" is a Chicago-esque parody that reveals the truth in politics. Truth in politics…now that's funny.

52817cbe-9_small Public Radio's weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam, 12th STREET JUMP celebrates America's original art form, live! from one of its birthplaces-- 12th Street in Kansas City, where Basie tickled and ivories and Big Joe Turner shouted the blues. Each week, hosts Pearl MacDonald and Pete Weber offer up a lively hour of topical sketch comedy, improvs with the audience and some great live jazz and blues from the 12th STREET JUMP band (musical director Joe Cartwright, along with Tyrone Clark on bass and Mike Warren on drums) and vocalists David Basse and Nedra Dixon. Special guests join the fun every week down at the 12th Street Jump.
