There are several cities that are essential to jazz’s history: New Orleans, New York, Chicago, Detroit, Philadelphia, Los Angeles……and Pittsburgh. Of all of these cities, pound-for-pound, New Orleans may stand tallest – but Pittsburgh is right behind. Dozens and dozens of jazz’s innovators lived here, grew up here, took inspiration from their hometown region…and helped to shape more than a century of America’s musical gift to the world.
Most of these legendary jazz cities do not have full-time jazz radio stations. Pittsburgh didn’t, either – until recently. When AM 1550 became the Pittsburgh Jazz Channel, for the first time, jazz was available throughout the region every day, day and night.
