Jazz – an incredibly diverse musical genre – is still receiving dedicated programming across radio networks around the globe. Its varied nature means that radio audiences can seek it out on classical, pop or generalist channels. Yet how can we best represent this ever-evolving form of music, ensuring it does not get swamped by more dominant genres? How can we keep jazz radio programming relevant and unique without resorting to overused formulas? How do we still find space for jazz? In our first Music and Radio 60-minute session dedicated to this genre, a panel of specialists will be looking at different approaches to tackling these issues.
