About this show

His woman has left him, he's flat broke, and it's almost five o'clock in the morning. Suddenly Nomax finds Big Moe, Four-Eyed Moe, Eat Moe, No Moe, and Little Moe emerging from his 1930s style radio to comfort, cajoles, wheedle and jazz him with the hit songs of songwriter and saxophonist, Louis Jordan, one of the most revered talents of the twentieth century. With more than fifty top ten singles and instantly recognizable classics such as "Early in the Morning," "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying" and "Is You Is or Is You Ain't My Baby," this great composer brought a popular new slant to jazz that paved the way for the rock-and-roll of the 1950s.
