November 20, 2013 – By James Battaglia – The tower stands high over Greece Athena and the programming is run from the media center at Olympia, but anyone within 15 miles can turn their dial to 90.1 to listen to homegrown jazz radio “the old-fashioned way” as a local station celebrates a milestone anniversary. Jazz 90.1 first went live 40 years ago, on Nov. 1, 1973. Owned to this day by the Greece Central School District, it started at Athena as a low-power, 10-watt station that took years to raise funding for. The production offices eventually moved to Apollo Middle School (now Odyssey Academy). After the district’s Capital Improvement Project included the construction of a media center at Olympia, the station moved there in 2005.
Jazz90.1 is pleased to present a live on-air performance by The Greece Jazz Band. The concert takes place on Wednesday January 22nd from 7-8 p.m. live on Jazz90.1, and online. The Greece Jazz Band has been performing in the greater Rochester area since 1997. Created after community surveys indicated a desire to hear big band jazz, this volunteer big band has developed a varied repertoire of familiar standards, dance tunes, and modern high-energy jazz charts. For more information on the live studio concert series, click on the concert series link on our home page.
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.
