Support Jazz90.1 With a Wish List Donation

Like any business, Jazz90.1 spends thousands of dollars per year on equipment and office supplies that keep our station going. In these tough budget times for us, we are always looking for ways to save money, without affecting what you hear on air each day. Now, you can help Jazz90.1 in more ways than just cash contributions. We’re pleased to present the Jazz90.1 “wish list” – which is a list of everyday items we need, but can’t quite afford out of our operating budget. If you can help by donating something off of the list, please e-mail jazzinfo@jazz901.org. If you do donate a product, Jazz90.1 will provide you with a donation letter that you could use for a possible tax deduction. Thank you for your help! CLICK HERE for a current list of our needs.

Jazz90.1 is YOUR Station!

The great thing about Jazz90.1 is that it’s YOUR station. We’re a community jazz station, supported by thousands of members from Rochester and elsewhere who believe in jazz, and who believe that it should occupy a place of honor on the airwaves. Are you one of those people? Then support Jazz90.1! Click here for more information on becoming a member. If you’d like to become a Jazz90.1 business underwriter, you can call 585.966.2660. No matter how you support us, we hope that we can count on your pledges to keep one of the nation’s last 24/7/365 jazz stations on the air.

Breaking Through Barriers

Jazz90.1 is also an important outlet for music and voices that don’t make it onto commercial radio. Our longest-running show is The Polka Bandstand Show heard every Saturday from 10 a.m. – noon. We also feature the Lithuanian-language Dainos Aidas; The German Radio Program; and La Nueva Era in the Morning, a 4-hour program of Latin music (broadcast in Spanish). You don’t need a plane ticket and passport to expand your horizons…all you need is a radio or computer tuned to Jazz90.1. (Check out our program schedule for more information.)

Our Mission

At Jazz90.1, we believe that jazz is a living music. That’s why half our broadcast hours are focused on current artists who are committed to moving the music forward. Jazz90.1 plays more new music than any radio station in the U.S. On the flip side, we also play a heaping portion of the classics, names like Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, and many more. When you listen to Jazz90.1, you get the best new jazz, and the best jazz of all time.
