Jake Shimabukuro and his Uke

Filed under: Radio Today, Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 6:36 pm

This is one of the favorite guests on The Bob Edwards Show, a young man who can take the ukulele, an instrument many of us think of as nothing more than a tiny guitar, and wring amazing sounds out of it. This interview, which originally aired on the Ides of March in 2011, is a full-show conversation with this virtuoso. From the introduction:

Jake Shimabukuro is back on the program today and we admit he has multiple fans on our staff. For one thing he is just a very nice, likeable young man. But it’s also impossible to ignore his impressive virtuosity on his musical instrument of choice—the humble ukelele. Something about the instrument makes us smile. Perhaps we regard it as a toy guitar. Or maybe it conjures up scenes of frat party sing-alongs in the 1920’s. Whatever, a uke is a fun thing. And in the skilled hands of Jake Shimabukuro, it can make fabulous music. Jake’s repertoire is all over the musical spectrum and he seems to favor challenging material—as we will hear for the next hour.

Script/roadmap included below. And a belated thanks to the show for the present!
