Jazz Beat

Kyle Fisk


Amanda Romero

Tuesday  11 AM - NOON

Kyle C. Fisk has taught graphic design since 1991 and is currently a professor at Sinclair Community College.  Kyle has always had a love of jazz music and you can catch his eclectic mix of smooth jazz on Tuesdays from 11:00 AM until noon with his partner Amanda Romero on 89.5 FM.



"My father played nothing but jazz and salsa at home. We were not allowed to play any other music styles on his stereo!" says Amanda Romero. Currently, she is an associate professor at Sinclair Community College. "It’s been a joy being able to host Jazz Beat."


Clifford Darrett






Clifford Darrett is a percussionist and played a lot of his fathers’ percussion instruments growing up.  His musical career began in the U.S. Air Force as a drummer. In 1998, he began taking private lessons with professional percussionist Carlos "Sal" Salaz for a year and a half and became familiar with congas, shakers, bongos, cowbells, guiros and many other Afro-Cuban, Afro-Brazilian and Afro-Puerto Rican instruments.



Jim Woodford has played trombone, guitar and drums.  Ken Burns and his PBS jazz documentary pulled Jim into the jazz musical genre. Jim is on the board of directors for Jazz Advocate, a non-profit organization promoting jazz in Dayton and other surrounding areas.  He attends live jazz performances every chance he gets.
