Overnight listeners in the Lexington and Frankfort areas now have a choice of musical styles. While 88.9 FM and the network of WEKU Stations continue to present classical Music Through the Night, Classic 102.1 now features Overnight Jazz.
This program addition features legendary Pittsburgh jazz host Tony Mowod, starting at 10:00 pm Monday through Thursday nights, continuing until 2:00 the next morning.
Veteran jazz DJ John Lasanich provides the music from 2:00 until 4:00 am. On Sundays, the jazz gets started at 11:00 pm, hosted by Scott Hanley.
These new hours of overnight programming are provided by Pittsburgh-based Pubradio Jazz, presenting what they describes as, "An acoustic mainstream jazz service focusing on a strong lyrical sound, designed to delight both casual listeners and passionate jazz lovers."
Pubradio Jazz Music Director Dave Becker picked a random hour of our service, and these are the artists played: John Fedchock, Scott Hamilton, Clark Terry, Bob Sheppard, Gene Ludwig, Lois Deloatch, Arlene McDaniel, Andy Bey, Barry Harris, and Gary Burton. The hour before that: Rahsaan Roland Kirk, Houston Person, Walt Harper (w/Ray Brown), Melody Gardot, John Brown, Wes Montgomery, Loston Harris, Paquito D'Rivera, Modern Jazz Quartet, Bill Charlap.
