Frankly Jazz was a half-hour television program, devoted to the very best in West Coast Jazz performances. It originated at KTLA in Los Angeles in 1962, and was hosted by Frank Evans. Evans was one of the preeminent jazz disk jockeys of the day, and his daily radio program on KRHM-FM was the inspiration for this television program.
Frank Evans died at the early age of 56 in 1973. This blog site is maintained by me, Lance Evans, Frank’s youngest son (though at 63 now, not so young!)
