Saturday Night Jazz is a three hour program of REAL jazz music (and a little blues too) broadcast on 89.1 FM, KMHD and streamed live on the web at kmhd.fm.

Every hour I play 20 to 25 minutes of new jazz releases, beginning at approximately 22 minutes into the hour. The rest of each hour is devoted to bringing you the best older jazz… “older” in this case meaning anything that is no longer “new”. One minute you might hear David Sanborn from last year’s hit CD “Here And Gone”; the next minute you might hear a classic Coltrane track from the 1950’s.

I play mostly up-beat instrumental music insterspersed with a few vocals. Saturday night is for feeling good and having fun, and Saturday Night Jazz strives to present the kind of music that will help you achieve that.

What you will NOT hear on Saturday Night Jazz (or on any KMHD programming) is so-called “smooth jazz”. Pretty much anything else is fair game though!

To see my complete playlist for last night’s show, or any previous show, for that matter, head on over to kmhd.fm and click on the “Playlists” link.

While you’re at kmhd.fm looking at my playlist, you can also BUY any of the music I played simply by clicking on the “BUY” button that you’ll see next to each song. A portion of every purchase goes to help support KMHD and keep jazz radio alive in the Portland, Oregon metro area!


89.1 KMHD is owned and operated by Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. KMHD began operation in 1984 and is the ONLY full time jazz and blues station in the Portland metropolitan area. 2009 is KMHD twenty-fifth anniversary!

THANK YOU for your support, and for listening to Saturday Night Jazz on KMHD!
