We're marking our 30th anniversary as a daily NPR program, with a retrospective of some of our favorite interviews from our early days. Drummer Max Roach was one of the originators of bebop. Singer Anita O’Day made it big singing with Gene Krupa. She changed her name from Colten to “O’Day” because it means “dough” in Pig Latin, and she hoped to make plenty of it. Pianist Jay McShann was considered the last of the great Kansas City pianists. One of his sidemen was Charlie Parker.
