Here's Don about Big Band Jump

BIG BAND JUMP was a two hour weekly program that thrilled our audience around the world for several years. Unfortunately it was towards the end of this special shows run. So after 27 years of production, in September 2013 Big Band Jump ceased production. We cannot thank Mr. Don Kennedy enough for his talents, knowledge, and entertaining personality that drove the program for so many years.
