Richard Bridgeforth

Host, Latin Jazz Corner

Richard B or The Jazzman as he has come to be known, describes Yuma’s Latin Jazz Corner as being a show that takes you on an exotic journey… from the coast of Brazil to the beautiful beaches of Jamaica, through the streets of Havana to the Jazz clubs of Palm Beach…without ever leaving your chair. And for those driving down the highway…it seems to turn a simple trip into a sweet island journey …so, if you have a taste for something different …join me every Saturday afternoon from 2:00 to 4:00pm, to enjoy the best in jazz with a twist of Brazilian, dash of Caribbean, spiced up with a lot of Latin grooves.

Richard has been on the air at KAWC since December 4, 2010. He is also the President/Executive Director of The Yuma Jazz Society Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to the education, production and promotion of jazz in Yuma and the world. Richard’s hobbies include Writing Poetry, Short Stories, playing chess, and Photography.
