Meet Your Jazz For The Soul Host - Ted Murdaugh
Ted, "The Gospel Jazz Messenger" is a man of faith who
loves It's Heavenly
jazz. He is also an entrepreneur and former Corporate Executive
who now, is the CFO at First Church of God in Columbus.
He had a direct encounter with music as a second grader by
taking trumpet lessons at
school. He fell so much in love with the
horn that he practiced an
average of eight hours a day and by the
time he was in the fourth grade
he found himself in the high school marching band.
However, in 1966 a
greater call came in the deep south to uphold the 1954 Supreme Court
Decision and he along with ten or so others integrated the public
schools of Hampton County
South Carolina. This is where his playing
ended due to not being able to purchase a horn (that
were provided free
of charge in the former segregated school). But his love of the music
continued to grow and remains strong today as a self proclaimed jazz
historian and supporter. Therefore being able to host a Gospel Jazz
Show is like having your cake and eating it too.
Listen in on Sundays
from 9 am to 11am as "The Jazz Messenger" delivers "Jazz For The Soul" with a great blend of inspirational gospel jazz music.
