This is the Manager's Minute.
The hippest jazz festival around, an Oklahoma tradition - Jazz in June - is back this week for three days of daytime clinics and evening concerts in Norman.
The 36th annual Jazz in June features Blues Under the Stars on Thursday with headliner Josh Hoyer & Soul Colossal, Jazz Under the Stars on Friday with headliner Jonathan Scales Fourchestra, and the festival concludes with Jazz in the Park on Saturday at Norman’s Andrews Park. Featured performers Saturday night are Frisson, BRD and the genre-bending group, Funky Knuckles.
KGOU is pleased to be one of the major contributors to Jazz in June again this year. Jazz in June concerts are free – but if you go, put some money in the buckets to help pay for this outstanding music festival.

Until next time, with the Manager’s Minute, I’m Dick Pryor.
