Boasting more jazz programming than any station in the metro-Hartford area, WRTC airs more than 30 hours a week with no style left out.
The definition of smooth jazz, brought to you by a host who knows the music and artists inside and out.
DAY BREAK JAZZ
Host: Kevin McCabe
Contemporary and R&B-flavored jazz with no shortage of surprises as well as a special drive-time set with a featured artist. A great way to get the week started.
A different host each week and therefore, a wide variety of jazz styles. Keeping alive the spirit of Bob Parzych’s The Kitchen Sink of Jazz.
6-9 a.m. The Best In Jazz
Host: Herman McKeever
A wide range from big bands, bop, hard bop and perhaps some contemporary sounds.
Host: Joe Yankus
Something different every week as Joe digs into a collection that runs the gamut from blues, Dixieland, fusion and probably everything in between.
MIKE IN THE MORNING
Host: Mike Darr
Three hours of solid music, running the gamut from old to new, with special sets focusing on a featured artist or band.
4:30- 6 p.m.
Sit Down & Shut Up
Host: Bailey Irwin
A creative mix of jazz styles, with an emphasis on fusion and acid jazz.
6-9 a.m. Blues
Host: Dr. Love
The Doctor is back with classic blues cuts. A great way to start the days.
THE FAR SIDE OF JAZZ
Host: Stan ‘The Porpoise” Kaminski
Reaching back to the fusion era of the 1970s and 80s and even tapping into some selections from the 90s. Listeners should be prepared for vintage vinyl from this exciting period.
Hosts: Paul Hensler/Steve Adler
A diverse mix of styles and artists are explored — truly something for everyone.
