Hot Jazz Heats Up Radio Sausalito this Fall

Sausalito’s AM radio waves and online stream will come alive with “Hot Jazz” thanks to a unique locally-produced music program debuting this week on Radio Sausalito. Jazz Rhythm explores this music from the first half of the last century and how the Bay Area’s colorful characters and culture helped shape what has been called America’s most original art form.

Many one-of-a-kind recordings and performances from local venues will be played on the series, ranging from the pub-like Club Hangover on Bush Street to Sacramento’s huge Dixieland festivals. Exclusive interviews feature local artists who underscore the Bay Area’s unique contributions to jazz history like trombonist Bob Mielke, reedman Bob Helm, and singer Clancy Hayes.

The series is produced and hosted by six-time award-winning broadcaster, Dave Radlauer who has been presenting classic jazz since 1982. “Sausalito and Southern Marin are jewels of the Bay Area where I’ve spent happy times hiking, dining, and working,” says Radlauer. “I’m delighted to be partnering with Radio Sausalito to bring my series to jazz lovers in the area.”

The first episode of Jazz Rhythm premiers September 23rd on Radio Sausalito with new episodes available every week throughout the fall. Listeners can tune in Wednesdays at noon and again at 7pm to catch the latest episodes on the air and streaming online at radiosausalito.org

Radio Sausalito Show Wins International Award!

Radio Sausalito is proud to announce that one of its locally produced shows, The Joys of Jazz, has won a prestigious New York Festivals Award as one of the best radio shows in the world.  The trophy, in the form of a bronze microphone, was presented Monday in New York City to the show’s host and producer Bob Hecht. This marks the first time a Radio Sausalito show has earned such high honors on an international stage.

The New York Festivals International Radio Program Awards honors radio programming and promotions in all lengths and formats from radio stations, networks and independent producers from around the globe. The Joys of Jazz was nominated in the category “Best Regularly Scheduled Music Program” which is open to radio shows featuring music of any genre. Other nominees in this catagory, with entries from over 30 countries, included The New York Philharmonic This Week hosted by Alec Baldwin, and Song Travels with Michael Feinstein.

Show host Bob Hecht has been producing The Joys of Jazz each week in the Radio Sausalito studios since the show began in 2013. A veteran jazz DJ, Hecht is honored to win the award, “It’s especially gratifying and encouraging that a show presenting jazz, a genre representing such a small segment of the commercial market, is being recognized in such a big way,” Hecht said.

The Joys of Jazz presents carefully curated musical programs each week focusing on particular themes along with excerpts from Hecht’s interviews with a variety of notable musicians. The show celebrates the works of great jazz composers, instrumentalists and singers, as well as the central role played by the Great American Songbook in enriching the jazz repertoire. The Joys of Jazz is heard every Friday at 4 and 8 pm and again on Sunday at 8pm on Radio Sausalito.
