Will the Thrill
Community host of Talkin’ All That Jazz
What’s your show about and when does it air? Bringing you the best in Smooth Jazz, with a hint of the classics and a touch of R&B. When live community shows return to WKUF, my show will air Sundays from 2 pm to 5 pm.
Is there a story behind your on-air name? While covering the Detroit Tigers spring training with two other co-workers (“Skins” and “Rooster”), I was the only one without a nickname. So by the time we got to Florida they settled on “The Thrill” and I agreed.
When did your show debut? 2/9/20
What do you like to do in your spare time? Spend time with family, travel, read, cook, shop for music and groceries, attend concerts and sporting events. I’ve also been the color analyst for Powers Catholic radio broadcast football and basketball for the last 18 years.
Tell us about a funny incident that happened during your show. I had a conversation with a female listener who was clearly inebriated.
If you knew you were going to be stranded on a desert island, what are 10 of the songs you’d want with you?

- Chrisette Michelle-Your Joy

- Stanley Turrentine – Gibraltar
- Roy Ayres- You Send Me
- Jill Scott- Whatever
- Maxwell- Whenever Wherever Whatever
- Rahsaan Patterson-Where You Are
- Kendrick Lamar-We Gone Be Alright

What is one of your most memorable concert experiences? The Beastie Boys tossing cans of Budweiser into the crowd.
Tell us something about yourself that people might find surprising. I’m somewhat of a introvert.
