Chicago vocalist Alison Ruble is featured this week on 12th STREET JUMP

12th STREET JUMP, public radio’s weekly jazz, blues and comedy jam, continues with guest appearances by Chicago vocalist Alison Ruble and guitarist John McLean this Saturday night, March 12 at midnight Central Time (1am Eastern, 11pm Mountain, 10PM Pacific). The popular radio show, recorded live on Kansas City's famed 12th Street Strip,  is syndicated on the Public Radio Exchange and streamed live.

Alison Ruble is a Chicagoland favorite with several hot CDs to her credit, including the most recent. Musical director John McLean joins Ruble direct from sessions and tours with Grammy winning vocalist Kurt Elling.

Award-winning tenor saxman Bobby Watson appears on the April 9 tribute to pianist Herbie Hancock. Trumpet player Stan Kessler and reedmen Kerry Strayer and Kim Park are also featured in upcoming weeks on the show.

Hosted by Pete Weber and Pearl MacDonald, 12th STREET JUMP features vocalists David Basse and Nedra Dixon, musical director Joe Cartwright on piano, Tyrone Clark on bass and Mike Warren on drums in a fast-paced hour of jazz, blues and topical sketch comedy. "It's sort of like a jazz and blues 'Prairie Home Companion' or SNL," explained Exec Producer Mark Edelman.

The 12th STREET JUMP line up of featured artists and special guests includes the following (all dates are Saturdays):

ARCHNEMESIS ANNOUNCES 2011 WINTER TOUR

Asheville, North Carolina-Fresh off a New Years’ run that included shows in New York City, Denver, New Orleans, and a blowout New Years’ Eve extravaganza in Dallas at “Lights all Night” with Ghostland Observatory and Two Fresh, Archnemesis has announced their 2011 Winter Tour dates. Coming off a headlining run through the South, Archnemesis takes their act to Colorado with Kraddy. The tour then continues with Kraddy through the Midwest with stops in Nebraska, Minnesota, and Wisconsin before teaming up with Signal Path for a show in Chicago, IL. After a headlining show in Louisville, KY, Archnemesis will head to the Northeast to play five dates with Conspirator.  From there, they again team up with Kraddy to finish out the last week of the tour. The 23 show tour concludes February, 26th at New Earth Music Hall in Athens, GA.

Formed as the musical brainchild of Curt Heiny and Justin Aubuchon (Telepath, MO Theory), Archnemesis creates its distinctive sound by combining original music with samples ranging from early 20’s blues and jazz to modern hip-hop and soul. With their first EP "Diamonds and Glass" available now for free download at www.archnemesismusic.com and their debut full-length album slated for an April 1st release, Archnemesis continues to turn heads at festivals and club shows while elevating the standard for modern electronic music.
