After such an amazing early part of the month, full of recording a new CD and winning best Boston jazz act, we were shocked to hear of the changes coming to local Boston jazz radio. WGBH, the station whose studio we were just recording in, is cutting back hours of two prominent jazz shows. Eric Jackson, a friend of the Yoko Miwa Trio and a prominent jazz DJ for WGBH, will no longer host his fantastic show Monday-Thursday evenings. His show is getting pushed to Friday-Sunday with fewer hours. Because of that time slot change, Steve Schwartz’s Friday show is being eliminated. Both DJs have been in the Boston jazz scene for decades, and they have both been active in curating the best of jazz for their Boston audience.
We’ll keep you updated of any developments, but some of these programming changes may start as soon as July 2nd.
