1988 Tory started her career in radio! She interned at Brown University's WBRU 95.5 FM and continued her studies in communications and radio broadcasting at the University of Alabama. Currently, Tory hosts her own show, Sentimental Sundays w/ Tory from 2-6pm each week at www.wfsk.org.
Sentimental Sundays w/ Tory, focusing on the emotional forethought, listener ship has captured the attention of Music City and has been on the air since 2003. Tory has a fiercely dedicated group of listeners she refers to as Sentimental Sunday "Riders". Tory hopes to one day have a syndicated Radio Program to air nationwide. “If but for a moment, everyone should afford themselves a sentimental moment before the sun sets each day. Sentiment is revealing of oneself, a way to find your way back to you, sharing how music in lyric and instrumental measure moves you.”
Hence, A combination of emotional forethought and lyrical measure of the songs she plays; the composition of the instruments; the blend inside Sentimental Sundays w/ Tory includes a segment where we “Swing w/ the Sisters” and the “Let’s Do It Again’ hour.
Listeners love Swingin’ w/ The Sisters, “a medley of sisters to swing jazz, smooth jazz, and a touch of R&B classics, exclusive to the ladies. The selection just before the sisters come on adds chivalric appeal, as is a male artist ’opens the door for the ladies‘.
The Let's Do It Again Hour is lead with Gerald Veasley’s rendition of Let’s Do it Again w/ John Legend and The Staple Singers and multiple blends of Smooth jazz covers mixed with classic tunes.
Inside Sentimental Sunday, in addition to the forecast, she gives her listeners the estimate-time of the sunset. Giving her listeners reason to ‘be still and share a moment with themselves, a loved one, with God‘. At the end of each show, Tory reminds her listeners “I’ll be here next Sentimental Sunday, if it’s in His will…listen…count your blessings one-by-one; be mindful of the needs of others, as they’ll be mindful of yours. Be a blessing for someone… and be good”. Then Diane Reeves carries the show to it’s end with 'That’s All', with a resounding lyric, “I can only give you love that lasts forever. …a promise to be near each time you call,… the only heart I own, for you and you alone baby that’s all…that’s all!

The Jazz Network is exactly what the title suggests, a place where you get to mix and mingle with those who have not only an appreciation for Jazz but a forum to hear new up and coming artists as well. I've hooked up with so many of my old friends that I've lost contact with over the years here and it's been a great place to meet folk, appreciate good music and Musicianship. What an incredible idea!!
The great composer and bandleader was distraught over the 1967 death of Billy Strayhorn, his songwriting and arranging partner of 28 years. But Ellington took Strayhorn's passing as an impetus, born of necessity, to increase his own productivity. Here are five examples.
At the Village Vanguard, one flight down from the hubbub of New York City, in a tight space packed with people, we're about to embark on a musical odyssey by sea. Our captain is saxophonist Chris Potter, who's launching his Odyssey-inspired album The Sirens.
Divine: The Jazz Albums, 1954-1958 packs four CDs with Vaughan's music, recorded live or in the studio with bands big and small. Two live albums from Chicago nightclubs are standouts, partly when a performance threatens to slide off the rails.
