In 1967 and '68 the charismatic record producer Tom Wilson hosted a free-form radio program called "The Music Factory," sponsored by MGM-Verve Records. The series has been gone from radio ever since, but Irwin is airing episodes on sporadic Wednesday afternoons at 4pm (Eastern). On January 25th, we'll hear Wilson interview legendary jazz, R&B, and Latin producer Teddy Reig. Reig was one of the most colorful and controversial characters on the music scene from the 1940s thru the 1960s. A 300-lb, fast-talking, reefer-smoking street-smart Jew who lived Black, Reig produced the first recordings by Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and Stan Getz, before transitioning into Latin Music. The program features recordings by Chico O'Farrill, Roland Kirk, Count Basie, Jerome Richardson, Willie Bobo, and more. This program originally aired in December 1967.
