The Vocal Sound of Jazz
Saturday Nights at 11pm
The “Vocal Sound of Jazz” began airing on 89.5 FM (now WHRV-FM) on January 4th 1980. Originally a 30 minute program that aired on Friday evenings, the program expanded to it current 60 minute format and moved to Saturday evenings at 9:00pm during the 90s. It was also aired over WUOM in Ann Arbor, Michigan for a five-year period in the late 1980s.
Produced and hosted by Jack Frieden since its premiere broadcast, the program has always attempted to spotlight both jazz vocal music’s post 1950s history, as well as the new singers and songs that will continue to play an increasingly prominent role in the music’s future.
