Tuesday Featured Artist: Louis Armstrong http://wfpk.org/2015/tuesday-featured-artist-louis-armstrong/ http://wfpk.org/2015/tuesday-featured-artist-louis-armstrong/#comments Mon, 03 Aug 2015 05:18:03 +0000 http://wfpk.org/?p=301332 Listen for a song from our Tuesday Featured Artist every hour from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

One of the most influential figures in American music, Louis Armstrong would have been 114 this Tuesday. Developing his trumpet skills at the New Orleans Home for Colored Waifs and honing them riding up and down the Mississippi on a steamboat, Satchmo eventually became one of the most popular and important players in the world of traditional jazz.
