​"We are delighted to be carrying Full Moon Hacksaw here at Angelica Community Radio via Pacifica’s Audioport. 

"Out in the wilds of western New York there really isn’t any station playing jazz in our listening area. We have been very pleased with the positive response we get about jazz programming. It proves that if you provide quality content, people notice! You bring so much musical knowledge with you every time you come to the mic for Full Moon Hacksaw Jazz. Couple that knowledge with your warm, conversational style and you have created hard-to-resist radio."

The Charlie Hunter Trio says come as you are, as it smells like teen spirit! Hunter was influenced by Roland Kirk, of whom we hear playing multiple saxes at once. Earthy sounds from Oregon, and as promised on Instagram we are getting VERY SAXY. A section celebrates Charlie Parker, Illinois Jacquet, Bird himself with the master Coleman Hawkins and James makes us Moody. Blues round out hour 1, Victor Wainwright so swampy u can feel the humidity. Also Benny Turner and Asleep at the Wheel. Traditionalist Maria Muldauer sings Hoagy Carmichael, Mingus channels his energy, Poncho Sanchez mixes two worlds. Lucky Peterson mixes two instruments.  Next we have a mini-feature on the prodigious bassist Scott LaFaro, Bill Evans and Vic Feldman are respective leaders. Musical drummer Elvin Jones heads it off at the pass, a nod to Sonny Rollins from Bruce Eskovitz, and true melody from Lady Day. If you enjoy the music we’re in-synch….or maybe in the sink. Salsa, blues or off on our tangents, Hacksaw Jazz is always the I-beam.

A traditional Panamanian dance interpretation Puerto Rican-style by Willie Colon and Hector Lavoe opens, intensity builds with the Geoff Keezer/Joe Locke group. Piano continues with Indonesian teenage prodigy Joey Alexander (“I want to spend my childhood playing the piano”). And one more piano for the section, Brazilian Eliane Elias. U can see we’re internationally rhythmic. But jazz tempo still rules with Charles Rutherford’s Jazz Pacific Orchestra, Herb Ellis’ guitar, and the blues backbeats old and new from Linda Hopkins, Markey Blue, and the great John Lee Hooker. Hour two encompasses jam session percussion at Hermosa Beach’s Lighthouse, Astrud Gilberto is backed by Gil Evans. More big band this time with boogie and Mr. B’s Bird of Paradise, a couple new releases with Kait Dunton and David Restivo. In between resistance from Dennis Warren’s Full Metal Revolutionary Jazz Ensemble plus funk inside, outside and forward not forgetting the metaphysical Rahsaan Roland Kirk. A guitarist named Jimmy Ponder(s) Stevie Wonder, poetic percussionist Ray Barretto plays us out. in moment between infinity and the nanosecond, Hacksaw Jazz.

First thing apparent is a rhythmic winter. Paquito D’Rivera performs with big band, sans voices, Phoebe Snow is the lost cord (wish she’d survived to be as strong an influence as others today). Twin alto players Sonny Stitt and Bunky Green dazzle, Celia Cruz lays us promptly into Cuban rhythm. Sarah Vaughan sings in Brazilian time from one of her favorite sessions, Hungarian guitarist Gabor Szabo rides again relaying more guitar and a short theme: No one thinks tonally or philosophically like guitarist Leo Kottke, finger picking the acoustic hard, and charting what continues as Sea Journey with Gary Burton. Out of left field is one blues entry from Lynwood Slim to bridge the hours. Ivory and rhythm create the sum of Ahmad Jamal, Ben Webster’s sax is tender and Kathy Kosins sings us into this century. Uptempo spins from Red Garland and Dexter Gordon bring incomparable and much-needed swing into a new year, and the fairly unsung Herb Ellis brings returns to guitar. Our second blues entry is from Benny Turner, Stanley Turrentine lays back with The Three Sounds. Canadian Wray Downs pays a new tribute to Oscar Peterson and Kevin Mahogany is original and sensuous with his new release. Thru the years with a little blade and sharp teeth, unpredictable as a Hacksaw.

This episode we’re heavy on tropical rhythms, especially Brazilian. Canhoto da Paraiba doesn’t care about fame, just guitar. Reflective substantive personal musings come from pianist Joanne Brackeen, Arkansas to bop piano to Mt. Bethel PA, Bob  Dorough thinks following FHacksaw on Twitter may be better than anything. He & Asleep At The Wheel leader Ray Benson are the ultra-coolest living musicians we know. The Texas swing group collaborated with Blind Boys of Alabama, of which we interview member Ricky McKinnie at broadcast conclusion. Blues are the facts of life, examples from the D section of our collection: Debbie Davies, Guy Davis, Larry Arkansas Davis. From my era Wes Montgomery, Thad Jones and Mel Lewis ease, then roar, in. New releases, samba rhythms and salsa are all taken care of in hour # 2 by Roberto Occhipinti, Pat Martino, Sonny Fortune, Clarabelle and Africando. For our final frame we go from Bartok-inspired Chick Corea to Rhythm Bomb Records Mary Ann & Tri-Tones, plus archives from blues/British Alexis Korner & Tony Sheridan. Final selections come from Texas with Smokin’ Joe and B’Nois King, and Alabama with the aforementioned Blind Boys. Inspiration leading from one life event to the next, Hacksaw Jazz.

Rising to the occasion of any holiday party is Long Tall Dexter Gordon, from Britain there’s Courtney Pine. A continuing tribute to the late Bobby Hutcherson on mallets, Benny Green and Russell Malone make a great chamber duo, Duke is one of a handful taking advantage of the season’s music. Another one who split too soon was pianist Mulgrew Miller, Eddie Jefferson sings saxophone and Billy Eckstine’s innovative orchestra articulates Ooh Bop Sh’Bam. The obscure Margie Anderson sounds swinging, the perfect holiday cynicism from Miles and Dorough. For hour two SOB Buddy Rich employs Illinois Jacquet, the late violinist Zbigniew Seifert has John Scofield. New releases come from Toronto’s Saturday Night Fish Fry and Germany’s Benny & the Flybyniters. More violin with the great Stuff Smith, Poncho Sanchez invites you in for early morning celebration continued by Trilogy Big Band, Denverite Fred Hess and the legendary Dave Brubeck. Jingle Bell Jazz on Hacksaw’s Holiday.

​The precious pairing of Champion Jack Dupree with saxist King Curtis offers us a little nip to get the party going, while Kait Dunton provides the time travel. A reminder Oscar Peterson is prodigious emotion as his opus segues to guitar on vinyl featuring Jim Hall and guest Art Farmer, followed by funky fusion with Pat Martino. A bridge of rhythm is provided by low brass Plunge, then into Poncho Sanchez. Herbie Hancock brings piano and middle brass relief, while Charlie Brown’s Vince Guaraldi wishes us that soulful season once again. Happening Charlie Hunter is mellow this session, bringing in guest Norah Jones. Hour two finds Miles in a blue mood, then we do something not considered often on radio, the rhythm section demonstration by Jamie Abersold: A pattern not designed to be composition or solo, but we notice heavy electric bass bubbling to surface. A fabulous young lady, Bria Skonberg, has good taste in music retro in style but freshened up. Toronto’s Kirk MacDonald pays tribute to Stan Getz and Chick Corea in the process. Our continuing tribute to the Mighty Mose may as well continue to the eternal Cal Tjader, and no one will ever replace Sassy Sarah. But we are fortunate to connect regularly with Detroit’s Kathy Kosins, in her own voice and time. Giants Illinois Jacquet, Muddy Waters and Pete Jolly play us out. Basic foundations for both jazz and radio are time and sound.  Those we have, Hacksaw Jazz.​

Hacksaw Tom's bio:

Tom came to Phoenix at age 7, and after a flirtation with top 40 KRIZ and KRUX, discovered jazz on KXTC.  That was the beginning of a jazz and radio addiction that continues to today. He holds jazz responsible for his home life, because he met his wife Genny at Two Lips Café in Phoenix.  Both were friends of the band, "New Moon Jazz."

A set of drums was inherited from a brother, the bass drum head had a hacksaw on it.  A vow was made to keep that name going somehow, practiced to growing record collection.  After a little radio school, landed on-air at KXTC for a few years falling in love with the jazz radio format.  Experience with other radio formats too, but jazz was always most fun.  Sold advertising for own jazz show.  Weekend jazz DJ for 10+ years at 100,000 watt non-commercial KJZZ, Phoenix as "The Jazz Mechanic."  Learned other management radio jobs off-air at various stations.  This started a necktie collection.

Success with several bands, beginning with own "Hacksaw's Blues."  Drummer with Midnite Blues, Buddy Reed (Bon Jovi fell by one night to sing), Mike Moses (won Arizona competition to play in Memphis), Dean Murphy, and Dave Riley.  Drummer on CDs released by all except Reed.

In the '90s office, technical and management work at Phoenix's oldest and highest rated radio station, KTAR, staying 10+ years.  But no demand for jazz or blues on the air there.

Scaled band work down to one monthly coffee house gig by 2007, where members of "Hacksaw's Blues" formed an additional band "Full Moon Jazz" (reunion with former members of "New Moon Jazz").  Many times both bands jammed together so it was decided to combine everything under "Full Moon Hacksaw."  This led to a website http://fullmoonhacksaw.com to offer services of radio and drums, plus archives of current and vintage jazz radio shows.

Lost corporate broadcast job due to economy, plus growth in digital as traditional radio shrank.  Ironically had already started next jazz radio series (named "Full Moon Hacksaw" after the bands and the website) produced on-line at community station "Radio Phoenix" http://radiophoenix.org.  Soon became Fundraising Contractor for non-profit radio, successful at finding financial supporters in the Phoenix area.  The first syndication affiliate for the jazz show on-air was commercial KWCD-FM in Bisbee, southern Arizona.  After that came vocational school station KVIT-FM in Phoenix on two frequencies.  

Joined "Pat Roberts and the Heymakers"  as drummer 2011 to 2016; Two CDs released, two European tours in addition to permanent Phoenix work. 

In mid 2014 an LLC was formed named for a Hacksaw, a couple bands, a website and a radio show: Full Moon Hacksaw LLC. It is an entertainment and media agency, but combines radio and live music services.  

Also in mid 2014 Radio Phoenix management placed the Full Moon Hacksaw jazz/blues radio series in syndication on two non-commercial networks: PRX the Public Radio Exchange, and Pacifica Network's Audioport. This allows the program to be heard on 10+ affiliates nation-wide, most of them FM stations.

The current radio format is: "Records, neckties and drums."  The message is the same, only the media is changing.  

Drumming and broadcasting now support the jazz habit.
