Al “Jazzbo” Collins

Al “Jazzbo” Collins (1919-1997) was a legendary jazz deejay and one of America’s original hipsters.  His broadcast below the “Purple Grotto” ignited listeners with hip sounds on both coasts.  He also was a jazz deejay right here in Salt Lake City on KNAK.  Bad Brad and Troy Williams talk with KUER’s Steve Williams and Jazzbo’s son Brad about the musical and cultural legacy.
