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.
Jazz90.1 is also an important outlet for music and voices that don’t make it onto commercial radio. Our longest-running show is Polka Bandstand. We also feature the Lithuanian-language program Dainos Aidas; The German Radio Program; and Esencia Latina, a four-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.)
The great thing about Jazz90.1 is that it’s YOUR station.
