Terrestrial radio. Over-the-air radio. Standard radio. Traditional radio. Conventional radio. Whatever you choose to call it, it's the radio we all grew up listening to. No special equipment required. And . . .
I am thrilled to announce that our favorite music returns to this type of radio this weekend! On 90.9 FM WDCB. Beginning this Sunday, February 9, I will be hosting The Sunday Jazz Brunch on WDCB each weekend from 11:00am to 2:00pm.
What can you expect from the new Sunday Jazz Brunch? For starters, you'll hear quite a few artists who've made Sunday mornings a special place for us over the years on our other Sunday Brunch shows: Ramsey Lewis, George Benson, David Sanborn and Grover Washington Jr., just to name several. We'll also feature a special "Chicago Music" segment each hour, showcasing artists from Chicago or based in Chicago.
Since WDCB is primarily a jazz station, the new Sunday Jazz Brunch will favor that particular genre in both the instrumental and vocal content of the show. As always, however, I'll be choosing music based on how well it fits that uniquely intimate Sunday mood.
I invite you to give the new show a try and let me know what you think. Address your comments, suggestions and requests to me at WDCBSundayJazzBrunch@gmail.com.
(By the way, if you've gotten used to listening to radio through your computer or HD Radio, The Sunday Jazz Brunch is also available on WDCB 90.9 HD-1 and streaming on www.WDCB.org. And the Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch will continue to air on www.SmoothJazzChicago.net from 6am to 6pm Central each weekend.)
Our Smooth Video of the Day: Ramsey Lewis will officially launch The Sunday Jazz Brunch with this tune.
