A new radio show.
Fed up with all this lockdown? Let’s unlock some jazz music instead – a new monthly radio show all about jazz in Leeds, Leeds clubs, musicians and jazz fans Welcome to Jazz Unlocked on East Leeds FM. Steve Crocker from Jazz Leeds and James Fernie from Chapel FM will be keeping you in touch with the jazz scene in Leeds with a regular programme during the lockdown.
We have a broad definition of jazz so we’ll be including blues, big bands, jazz poetry and more. Jazz Unlocked will feature 45 minutes of interviews, album recordings, and specially recorded performances.
Leeds is a great place to play and listen to jazz – before the lockdown there were more than twenty venues where you could hear regular live sessions and the city has some of the finest jazz musicians in the UK too and we’ll be hearing from some of those people in the coming weeks.
First show goes out 9pm on International Jazz Day Thursday 30 April, 94.6m on FM in Leeds and surrounding areas, or online on www.chapelfm.co.u featuring an interview with Leeds bassist Adrian Knowles
The second show on Thursday 21 May has an interview with Hope and Social trumpet player and big band leader James Hamilton @ 9pm 94.6m on FM in Leeds and surrounding areas, or online here…
