The Global Future of Local Jazz Radio

In the crowded field of streaming music apps, there’s still nothing like JazzBird®. JazzBoston’s free global radio app lets you listen live, anytime and anywhere, to great jazz shows hosted by humans at stations all over the world. Think of JazzBird as an international radio station that runs 24 hours a day with hundreds of shows playing jazz of all styles. Or think of it as the future of local jazz radio, where all the best jazz shows around the globe become local and the best local jazz shows are heard worldwide.
With its potential to connect the world’s jazz community, we see JazzBird as a natural extension of JazzBoston’s mission to connect and promote the entire Greater Boston jazz scene and champion the music, the musicians and Boston’s place in the constellation of the world’s great jazz cities.

Why JazzBird?

JazzBird is the Greater Boston jazz community’s 21st century response to the move by public radio stations nationwide to replace jazz programming with news and talk. We believe radio remains the single most important portal to the music and that someone who knows and feels the music is the best guide. We also believe that local jazz radio provides essential support to the local jazz scene, wherever that may be.
Wherever you are, tell us about your favorite hometown jazz show and our curators will check it out. With JazzBird, the smallest of stations can gain a worldwide audience if it has a good jazz show and a good stream. And if you’re studying or working thousands of miles from home, you can tune in.
