This week in The KCSBeat, the Santa Barbara Independent‘s column on all things KCSB, Colin Marshall sits in with Sheamus Nolan, host of Thursday morning’s (and afternoon’s) fun-filled Down to Cruz with Jazz and Bluz:
“I don’t know crap about music,” said Sheamus Nolan. A curious admission for someone who hosts a music show, you might think, especially when that show drops the names of two musical genres within three words. “Since KCSB is an alternative station, I couldn’t just play classic rock,” said Nolan. “I didn’t know jazz and blues were any different, so I brought them together and pulled a bunch of their albums from the music library.” But Down to Cruz with Jazz and Bluz isn’t just, or even mainly, about jazz and bluz — er, blues. While most of its two hour time slot is indeed consumed by music both live and recorded, the show’s first mission is to have a good time.
