24-7 Coltrane on WKCR

WKCR-FM’s exhaustive, 24-hours-a-day radio salute to saxophonist John Coltrane was supposed to go down in September ’03, but transmitter malfunctions made it impossible to broadcast the tribute. Fortunately, the Columbia University radio station rescheduled the program for broadcast in March.

From midnight on Mar. 11 through March 24, the station will pre-empt all regular programming to bring listeners John Coltrane’s entire recorded legacy, some 200 hours of music. This will mostly be studio-recorded, officially released Trane material, but we have been told that some rare, archival footage will get on the air.
