When you see Zuill Bailey packing his cello on his back, heading towards you, you know you’re in for treat.

Juneau Afternoon has the red carpet rolled out in the studio, ready and waiting for him to make an appearance on Friday’s show and play a few pieces.

Here’s a little KTOO Red Carpet Concert of Zuill warming up before Juneau Afternoon. The video was produced by Will Mader.


Zuill Bailey gives Rhonda McBride an update on his first year as artistic director for the Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival and talks about what’s on his musical horizons.

  • Also on Friday: the Juneau Audubon Society’s birds to watch this Memorial Day Weekend.

Listen to the entire show:

Part 1. Zuill Bailey talks about parenting, playing the cell0, the joys of making great music accessible to all and his first year as artistic director for the Juneau Jazz and Classics festival. He manages to squeeze in some of his famous Bach concerto pieces into the conversation as well.

Part 2. Brenda Wright from the Juneau Audubon Society spotlights three summer visitors to Juneau. Two eat bugs and one likes fish.
