The Monday Makeout ...

... was a monthly creative music and innovative jazz series I programmed and produced from 2009-2013.

The Living Room Sessions /// Live on Neighborhood Public Radio /// May 2008

For a week in May 2008, I invited musicians in NYC to bring their usually-private outerborough jam sessions up to Madison Ave., where Neighborhood Public Radio was broadcasting live local programs from a ritzy storefront as part of their residency in the Whitney Biennial. It was an incredible week of music, the Upper East Side never knew what hit it!
