Jazz Caravan provided peerless music, regular traffic reports, and an outlet for otherwise pointless trove of discographic trivia.  

Enjoy only the finest in classic and contemporary Jazz, celebrate musician birthdays, learn about upcoming concerts, and spin recordings made today in Jazz history!  

You can expect a classy rotation of diverse artists and styles from under the Jazz umbrella, as well as ‘20s Sweet orchestras, ‘40s Swing-to-Bop, mid ‘50s Cool Hollywood, Chamber Jazz and anyone else considered “underrated” to be prominently featured.  

Hitch your wagon to the Jazz Caravan and blaze a trail to your Oasis in the City, every weekday from 4 to 6 PM!
