Check out where our show hosts are planning to be during the 2008 Jazz Fest. Of course, when you’re at Jazz Fest you never know where you’ll end up, but here are their current picks. You can also make your own schedule with our Jazz Fest cubes.
This spring, the ‘OZ studios had a visit from a longtime listener and supporter in Melbourne, Australia. Sue Beeton came to check out the new French Market digs and meet the staff. She’d held a fundraiser for the station at her home, and mailed a check to the station. But it was a much better treat to meet her in person
We first found Marla Dixon — a personal trainer, musician and WWOZ fan in Toronto — through a google search for “WWOZ” and “blog.” We were looking for fans and members who support the station from afar. What we found was an inspiring young woman who’s put a lot of time, thought and effort into the city and its music. And she’s determined to do even more in the future.
At the beginning of the New Year, many show hosts on WWOZ take a look back at some of their favorite CDs from the previous year. Here's quite a number of lists contributed by our hosts. Many of the CDs are linked to Amazon, so you can purchase them and support WWOZ.
In early August, 'OZ staff parked in a cool mountain town of Colorado for their first WWOZ On the Road gig of the year, The Telluride Jazz Celebration. From one of WWOZ’s unique recording/broadcasting trucks, jazz greats like Roy Hargrove, Bill Frisell and John Scofield were broadcast live from the spectacular mountain setting
