The Joys of Jazz

Bob Hecht (notice the last name) is curating and hosting his very own radio show, titled the Joys of Jazz. Hey so I get to brag about my Dad here for a few minutes.

When people ask me who my most affecting musical influences have been I go way back to what I was raised on; Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday. My Dad is the culprit here of course. But, he didn’t just expose me repeatedly to these obvious gems but rather, through having committed his entire life of listening to delving into ALL realms and depths of Jazz, has given me, and everyone who comes within ear distance, a comprehensive jazz listening education. He is the jazz master connoisseur. So, now is when the rest of the world has the opportunity to come within ear shot of this man’s brilliance in stereo. Get a glimpse into what my childhood was like, and at the same time listen to some incredible music, interviews, and wise, wise commentary.

Stream the Joys of Jazz each Friday at 4 & 8pm, Sundays at 8pm, and for those late nighters and international listeners tune in at 4am on Saturdays. All PST. 1610am in Southern Marin / 1710am in San Rafael

It feels so good to be proud!
