"Mama Jazz," longtime host of WMUB, dies

Phyllis Campbell, known to public radio listeners in southwestern Ohio as "Mama Jazz," has died at the age of 89, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. She hosted jazz programming on WMUB in Miami from 1979 to 2006 and became one of the station's most popular and distinctive personalities during 27 years on the air. "She was feisty as all get-out, passionately devoted to jazz, and unabashedly loyal to her legions of fans," Cleve Callison, former WMUB g.m., told the Enquirer.
