Interview with Alvyn Haywood, host of "Jazz School" WWFM

My visit to Mercer County Community College last month included an at length & many faceted conversation with Professor Alvyn Haywood, host of 'Jazz School' on WWFM [ Jazz On 2 89.1 FM, Trenton's Jazz HD Channel ] . We touched on topics ranging from the importance of Jazz in the context of contemporary culture, specific inspiration for me during the writing of JOE SENT ME, the background of my connection and collaboration with Academic Theatre Program Instructor Alex DeFazio which led to JOE SENT MDE, future plans, and more.

Professor Haywood & those at WWFM are shaping an immensely innovative and important program, one that reaches out to Trenton & beyond in a broad-minded and all-inclusive way, a model for radio stations everywhere that seek to educate, influence & inspire their audience as well as entertain.
