“The Big Broadcast!” is a re-creation of a live 1940’s radio variety show featuring the Jazz Ensembles (Big Band Jazz, Vocal Jazz, and Chamber Jazz) performing well-known tunes and hidden gems from the swing era and the Great American Songbook. For the last 15 years, the show has been emceed by Brian Lapis (WWLP-TV22 meteorologist) in the role of host “Fred Kelley,” while Gionfriddo appears as bandleader “Matt Morgan.”
