About the show:
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!

Jazz Radio 89.1 FM KMHD was founded in 1984 on the campus of Mount Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon. MHCC still owns the FCC license, but since August 10, 2009 the station has operated under a partnership between the college and Oregon Public Broadcasting (OPB). An all volunteer on-air staff of nearly 40 jazz and blues lovers present the music, supported by the highly professional staff of OPB.
KMHD is the ONLY full-time jazz and blues station in the Portland metropolitan area. Besides a broadcast area the includes most of northwest Oregon and southwest Washington, KMHD also streams over the Internet 24 hours a day, seven days a week at kmhd.org.
THANK YOU for your support, and for listening to Saturday Night Jazz on KMHD!
