ASU alumnus Stephen Koch premiers new work
ASU alumnus and award-winning journalist Stephen Koch, B.S., Radio-Television, 1992, will present his new work, "JUMP!: The Louis Jordan Story," Saturday and Sunday, July 19-20, 6-9:30 p.m., at the Lucy Lockett Cabe Festival Theatre, Wildwood Park for the Arts, 20919 Denny Road, Little Rock. The high-energy musical tribute "JUMP!" is part of Wildwood's celebration of the 100th anniversary of the birth of Brinkley native Louis Jordan. Koch, founder of the Louis Jordan Tribute, has been researching and writing about Jordan, his music, and his influence on rhythm and blues and popular culture for more that 15 years. Koch's popular program, Arkansongs, is syndicated on National Public Radio affiliates across the state, and is his home station FM-89s most popular podcast. Arkansongs can be heard on KASU 91.9 FM on Fridays at 4:50 p.m. as part of National Public Radio's program, All Things Considered. Tomorrow's edition of Arkansongs will discuss Jordan and his song "Caldonia," an example of jump blues, a genre popularized by Jordan, and a number 1 hit on the race records chart in May, 1945.
