WFIU - Producers / Night Lights Classic Jazz

Airs Friday, April 8, at 9 p.m. If you're searching the pages and records of jazz history for early and important women instrumentalists, then stop and take note any time you come across the name of Mary Osborne.  She started out as a little girl playing violin and guitar on the radio in Depression-era Minot, North Dakota, listening to jazz broadcasts on the radio out of Chicago--then one night she went to a club and heard Charlie Christian play, and her path as a jazz guitarist was set.
