Jerry Becker

I fell in love with jazz at the age of 13 or so when my brother-in-law
played a Dave Brubeck record for me.   I had been playing saxophone
and clarinet and I begged my teacher to teach me how to play jazz.

In college I had a jazz radio show also called "Now's the Time"  with
the same theme song by Charlie Parker.  So this is the second time
around (many years later!). On my show I play a variety of jazz with
emphasis on the saxophone. I like to introduce my audience to some of
the lesser known players.  I also celebrate jazz musicians' birthdays
and do an occasional interview.

I was a lawyer in Berkeley, CA specializing in labor and employment
law before retiring to Santa Fe 12 years ago.  I play saxophone in my
jazz quartet and the Los Alamos Big Band.

I am happily married with two grown sons, three granddaughters and a
grandson on the way.
