Doc Stull is a multidimensional and never conventional retired university professor, writer, and performer. He hosted a classics literature radio show for 20 years, wrote and narrated 75 sport history shows for ESPN sports and was a jazz reviewer/interviewer for the New Books Network.
According to Stull, his show combines his history of familial storytelling — from his vaudevillesque grandfather and Methodist educator grandmother to his former minister/philosophy professor/international consultant/gadfly father and theatrical/classical singer mother, as well as selected poetry/prose pieces from his travels in Germany, Israel, and Portugal.
The show also features Matt McClimon, vibes, and Nicholas Dominic Talvola, trumpet. RLA is made up of Tim Randles, keyboard, Mike LaBolle, drums, and Ken Lawrence, bass.

Doc will talk with DJ Boogie Woogie about jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi on Bounce Me Brother , Wednesday, February 12, 2014 at 8:00 PM on KHSU 90.5 FM, Arcata
Doc will be talking with Phil about Vince Guaraldi, known to most world-wide as the composer and pianist behind the famed Peanuts comic strip animated specials featuring Charlie Brown and Snoopy also played in Woody Herman’s “third herd” big band, composed the first ever Jazz Mass recorded live in San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral in 1965, participated in some magical and memorable collaborations with Brazilian guitarist Bola Sete and was a fixture in the bossa nova Latin jazz San Francisco club scene in the 1950’s and 1960’s. His Jazz Impressions of Black Orpheus introduced countless people to jazz and the sensuous sounds of boss nova. His single Cast Your Fate to the Wind won a Grammy for Best Original Jazz Composition and was a successful cross-over song into the top 40 more than a half a century ago. Though Vince Guaraldi died in 1976 at the age of only 47, his legacy was revived by guitarist David Benoit and pianist George Winston who recorded covers of many of his songs. Doc will be publishing a podcast interview with Derrick Bang, of the author of Vince Guaraldi at the Piano, on Doc’s jazz show on the New Books Network <newbooksinjazz.com>next month.
