Bright Moments Podcast is a storytelling project exploring the experiences and impact of people who have changed WBGO, Newark Public Radio, and the world of jazz.
In Season 1, we highlight NEA Jazz Master Dorthaan Kirk and her role in the beginnings of WBGO, Newark Public Radio. Learn about her commitment to jazz musicians as a curator and community organizer.
Though WBGO now stands as a global jazz powerhouse, its origins were far humbler, and it was Dorthaan Kirk's indispensable role in those formative years that laid the groundwork for the station's enduring success, spanning several decades.
