WZUM into the new year!
2018 is over - and it was a year of great jazz in Pittsburgh, and the sounds of it on the radio resonating across the the region, thanks to your support. Thank you!
Your contribution helps us continue and expand our local programs like the Pittsburgh Jazz Lunch, the MCG Jazz Spotlight Hour, the Scene - and our comprehensive broadcast and online chronicle of Pittsburgh Jazz, Jazz Central.
If you’ve been thinking of making a gift, still, we have a great collection of thank you gifts - including new CDs from Tony Campbell and Frank Cunimondo, a classic release from Eddie Jefferson, Slide Hampton and Richie Cole, plus an amazing big band project from Sammy Nestico, the arranger and composer behind so much great music from Sinatra and Count Basie.
2018 has been a fabulous year of return for jazz on the FM dial in Pittsburgh. Support the sounds and the service with your donation, now! Call 412-322-1800 or click on the “donate” button.
