DJ for A Day: Maude Maggart

Airs Saturday at 4PM on The Jonathan Channel and reairs; April 13 at 10AM & April 15 at 7PM

Monday, April 14, 2014

Vocalist and jazz sensation Maude Maggart is no stranger to the stage, so it only makes sense that we would invite her into the studio to share with us some of her favorite tunes. Tune in tonight at 7PM as vocalist she spins some of her favorite jazz records.

She comes from a family full of performers. Maggart's grandfather, Johnny McAfee, was an instrumentalist with the Harry James Orchestra and once stood in for Frank Sinatra as a vocalist. Both her parents performed on Broadway and her sister is singer/song writer, Fiona Apple.

Still, Maggart is a force all her own. Jonathan Schwartz once said of her “At 32, she still looks like a girl. But the woman emerges on stage when she sings and, to a degree, when she speaks. For Maude Maggart, the songs are life itself, the reason for being alive, for falling in love, for risking everything with a man who has touched her heart." As a part of our Jazz Appreciation Month, madame Maggart will host an hour of music by artists she adores most.

Tune in Saturday at 4PM and spend an afternoon with Maude. If you miss Saturday, the show will repeat Sunday, April 6 at 10AM and Tuesday, April 8 at 7PM.

Maude - your performance several years ago was one of the best evenings I spent at the late, lamented Algonquin Oak Room. Delighted that you'll be streaming and spinning this afternoon.

I think that it was wonderful for the Yankees to schedule an afternoon game so that Tuesday evening would be available to listen to Maude on the Jonathan Channel.
