My brother in the music, in the world, and in all-a-dat has passed away. Frank James Burns, a.k.a. ‘Frank Nitty’, left us August 21, 2020 while doing what he loved.
He pre-programmed enough stepping music and ‘Frank Nitty’ playlists to last at least another 20 years, so WFA Radio will continue to air his segment, D.J. Nitty’s Grown Folks Music, every weekday afternoon from 7:30 pm to 10:00 pm. He was a part of the WFA Radio thing from day one, and his playlists JAM!
We are also keeping the station drops he recorded, before he left, in our daily rotation because we like hearing him again. If you miss him like we do, listen to his time slot now and then and raise one for our brother, who left us waaaay too soon.

“Mark Ruffin’s Bebop Fairy Tales captures the heart and soul of the American experience during the 20th century with humor, wit and accuracy, just like the solos of the jazz musicians he uses as his artistic muse. It’s the best kind of history: poetic, noetic and hip.”
– Ben Sidran, Musician, Broadcaster, Author of “The Ballad of Tommy LiPuma”.
“The world needs Mark Ruffin’s Bebop Fairy Tales now more than ever. When he writes, The rhythm of the game allows her to interact with her husband without disturbing his enjoyment, I thought he was channeling me and how I learned to love baseball from Dexter Gordon. Baseball, Bebop, the drama of life, all together here. Yes, Bebop is the music of the future and these fairy tales teach us the truth.”
– Maxine Gordon, Author of “Sophisticated Giant: The Life and Legacy of Dexter Gordon”
"This is jazz history!" they said, "You can keep this information alive for almost free, so why not?" they said. So JazzUSA was resurrected as an ARCHIVE. There are no new materials being posted (right now...), but the 21+ years of great reviews and interviews are still available in the JazzUSA archive.
