How to Listen

Hey there, my name is Ahniwa Ferrari and I have a weekly two-hour radio show where I play jazz, swing, and blues tunes from around the world.

You can find my show live and local in Olympia, WA at 89.3 FM, every Wednesday from 4:00 – 6:00pm Pacific Time. Listen live online at kaosradio.org, via TuneIn, or using your favorite mobile radio app such as RadioFX.

As of March 2021 I am also posting recorded shows over on Mixcloud. Check it out and give me a follow! Please feel free to leave comments and make song requests. Thanks for listening!

August 25, 2021: Heck Yeah, Bagpipes!

I know the title may be Bagpipe Blues, but this is really bagpipe swing, baby!

Gunhild Carling is my new discovery, so along with a couple tracks from her (and her big band) we’ve got Rugcutter Dance Orchestra, Dandy Wellington, Tacla, Shirt Tail Stompers, Posey Royale, and lots, lots more!

No really, bagpipes. In swing. It works, I swear ….

August 18, 2021: Till the Well Runs Dry

Title spot this week goes to Miss T & The Mad Tubes (featuring Big Jay McNeely) – there are just a handful of YouTube videos that came up for them, but still some good ones, like this!

Also this week: Ella Fitzgerald and Muguette, back to back, along with Mat Najean Jazz Band, Hot Swing Sextet, Ultrafaux, Mamie Minch, Birch Pereira & the Gin Joints, and lots more. Enjoy!

August 11, 2021: Bamboozle Boogie

Marina & The Kats are a fun band out of Vienna, Austria, and get the title spot this week because it’s such a fun song name. They have some cool YouTube videos as well, like this one!

Also lots of new (to me) music this week, from folks like Kentucky Five, SwingHeap, Collectif Big Easy, Djangonauten, and many more. Enjoy!

August 4, 2021: Celebrating Tamar Korn

Tamar’s birthday was July 29 (which is actually a happy coincidence!) – but I actually decided to focus on her in this show because I realized just how many tracks I had with her singing that were with entirely different groups and in different settings. Like this lovely little personal concert she did last year with Mamie Minch …

Lots of great music all around, of course, but you’ll hear Tamar singing in various tracks with various bands, such as Gaucho, Eli & the Chocolate Factory, Professor Cunningham and his Old School, and Mona’s Hot Four. And, of course, with Mamie Minch, again, because they are both amazing.

You can find Tamar on Instagram and Facebook.

Enjoy!

July 28, 2021: People Are Strange

We’re back, and with lots of great music to share! Along with both Portal songs in swing-along versions from 8-Bit Big Band, I have some great tracks from Shirt Tail Stompers, The Hot Sardines, Le Dancing Pepa Swing Band, and Monkey Doo, among others.

Here is a fun recent video from Monkey Doo over on their YouTube channel, speaking of. Check it out!

New shows getting posted over on Mixcloud, but you will hear them first if you tune in to KAOS directly, either via the local airwaves or streaming at kaosradio.org or using your favorite radio streaming app.
