The life and times of Jazz 90.1 ... Rochester jazz radio

WGMC logoRecently, while looking around at the WGMC Jazz 90.1 website, I ran across a video produced by local Rochester filmmaker Dave Esposito, who has recently released a documentary showcasing Jazz90.1. Called “School for Jazz: The Jazz 90.1 Story,” the video celebrates the station’s 40th anniversary. Esposito and Agricola Media spent nearly four months shooting the project in an effort to showcase Jazz90.1’s history, and important place in the Rochester and international jazz scene. The video takes viewers on a tour and shows the history of Jazz90.1.  Here's the video... give it a look:


Jazz 90.1  is one of the few remaining 24/7/365 jazz stations (well, nearly 24/7/365, with a little polka, Italian, blues and other music interests thrown in) in the U.S. and unlike most commercial stations, still based on live (mostly volunteer) disc jockeys, who provide tastes of a wide variety of jazz and other music. Like this blog, Jazz 90.1 promotes live jazz and blues from artists across the Rochester area and is an important part of the local jazz community.  As I live near Cobbs Hill and suffer from interference with their signal, I have to get my jazz radio over the interwebs, so even if you don't live in Rochester or are out of town, you can stream one of their DJ's shows live at any time.

As Jazz 90.1 gets no public funding, the station is always in need of support. I'm a member and I hope you are, too.  If not, why not throw some cash their way?  They need other stuff too.
