One Man's Jazz
One Man's Jazz has been in existence since 1999. I had always wanted to try my hand at doing radio
because I loved jazz, had too many records, was active in it as a performer, and I was working as an artist representative and manager for primarily jazz artists. And apparently I have a radio voice. Ha! So when a new local college station was looking for volunteers, I jumped at the chance. I was so excited the day of my first show that I left the house wearing my house slippers.
That excitement has not left, and even though I tired of the college scene, I decided to head for the world of extraterrestrial radio and join Taint Radio, where a bunch of great programmers all freely program whatever the hell they like. And I do too. My tastes in the music have changed considerably since those first days of Brubeck and early Miles and Coltrane. Nowadays I'm all about expanding the palette, looking at artists from other countries besides North America, searching beyond the mainstream, and focusing on moving the music forward.
