Bebop Spoken There

KT Reeder: "The idea of teaching somebody to improvise is just bloody ridiculous. In this country jazz has been appropriated by universities. They have jazz courses, and they churn out people who have a degree in jazz, which makes me feel very nauseous, the idea that you can be trained to do jazz." - (Giant Steps by David Burke)

New online jazz radio station

Aycliffe Radio has launched a new programme – Jazz Time.

The weekly show was launched by presenter Mike Dixon on Sunday, 19 January.

“Mike is a veteran jazz lover and it’s a pleasure to have him on our team,” said producer Paul Mooney, a director of Aycliffe Radio.

The ninety-minute ‘Jazz Time’ show will be broadcast every Sunday at 6.00 pm and will cover a wide range of jazz - all styles from all eras. It is hoped that the show will help to raise the profile of jazz artists and events in the northeast region.

Guests on the show so far have included Alan Thompson,  Ray Sams, Tony Eales and Keith Belton. This Sunday's guest is David Goldberg

Aycliffe Radio is available worldwide online.
