Tampa Bay area local-boy-made-good Billy Norris will be heard live on heavy-hitter jazz radio station WBGO this Friday afternoon, according to an announcement sent my way. Billy is a very gifted bassist (and singer/guitarist) who also made a name as the teen movie reviewer for the St. Petersburg Times.
Below are the (unedited) details on his radio appearance:
