Jazz London Radio welcomes another Presenter to its roster of quality jazz and related music. Ali Affleck will present “Speakeasy Swingout” On Thursdays at 7pm and Sundays at midday, showcasing music ranging from blues to jazz to americana. We are sure you will enjoy this new dimension to Jazz London Radio.
Ali Affleck knows this ‘Vintage’ and Trad Jazz thing inside and out; she has been running her hugely successful ‘Speakeasy Sessions’ in both the UK and USA for over a decade, she is also a Lindy Hop and Balboa dancer AND a dual citizen ( USA/UK) – this makes her uniquely qualified to host her show the ‘Speakeasy Swingout’.
Ali is an award winning Jazz and blues vocalist and band leader to the Copper Cats, Bedlam Swing and the Gin Mill Genies and she performs regularly at jazz festivals and swing dance festivals throughout the UK and USA.
Working closely with the swing dance communities and overseas jazz musicians, Ali is dedicating The show to danceable forms of Jazz and blues with an aim to encourage collaborations and improve radio airplay for folk on both sides of the proverbial ‘pond’.
