Thank you for tuning into Jazz London Radio. So, how did Jazz London Radio come about? The idea came to me back in January 2014. I thought wouldn’t it be interesting to have a radio station which covers a range of music, primarily in the jazz setting.
I’ve taken my inspiration from a number of musical sources over the past 15 years. My discovery started when I acquired a satellite dish in the late ’90s and tuned into radio stations coming out of France, Italy and Germany. The stations mixed their playlists on an hourly and hence daily basis. During one hour of listening it was possible to hear Theolonius Monk, Miles Davis, Doves, Cranberries, Gil Scott Heron and Marcus Miller. Having spent my student years listening to John Peel on BBC Radio 1 religiously, the idea of music played on the radio without any real categorisation appealed to me greatly.
The idea to start a station based on these principles was something I wanted to explore. Coming out of London, but with the possibility of reaching anywhere in the globe should people wish to check it out. And whilst being a jazz station, having the freedom to play different musical styles and genres such as a Rock and Blues show or World Music special. With daily playlists mixing all of this music together under the great jazz umbrella, some of the music played here may not be jazz, but it will be in the jazz spirit of creativity and freedom, whether that be Indie or Electronica.
I hope you are enjoying the station so far, we have great Presenters on board and will continue to update with new shows and features throughout 2016.
