Jazz Day on CRN

cyates, 8th March 2016

The Community Radio Network will broadcast 24 hours of special Jazz programming to celebrate International Jazz Day on 30 April, 2016.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially designated April 30 as International Jazz Day in order to highlight jazz and its diplomatic role of uniting people in all corners of the globe.

Jazz in its many iterations has always been at home on community radio, with expert broadcasters all over Australia bringing their passion for the music to radio listeners.

The CRN’s recently launched CRN-2 channel will bring together special episodes of their excellent jazz programming from the weekly schedule such as Jazz Made In Australia (Eastside FM), Hot, Sweet & Jazzy (94.7 The Pulse), Tom Parker's New York Jazz and A Jazz Hour (Fine Music 102.5) alongside special programming created especially for the day, archives of live jazz recordings made by community stations, Australian jazz selections from Amrap and more.

The CBAA is extending the invitation to all stations to contribute to the broadcast. If you or your station has a jazz program that should be included in this special day of programming, please direct them to this application form.
