In addition to the many radio stations broadcasting Jazz After Hours every weekend, several also simultaneously "stream" the program to the internet as well. You'll find it on late night and early morning hours on weekends on WAMC, WYPR, WCPN, WBIA, KUNC, KPLU and others.

Erik Lacitis wrote a special profile on Jazz After Hours for The Seattle Times published on 12/21/12. You can read the article here.

We’ve had lots of great guests visit Jazz After Hours. Among them have been Branford Marsalis, Kurt Elling, Dave Holland, Pat Martino, Charles Lloyd, Michael Wolff, Mel Rhyne & Peter Bernstein, Nnenna Freelon, Joshua Redman, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kenny Barron and Charlie Hunter (see the studio gallery). Many have appeared on our show in conjunction with engagements at one of the West Coast’s premier jazz clubs, Dimitriou's Jazz Alley in Seattle, or with Earshot Jazz.

For more about Seattle’s very active jazz scene visit Earshot Jazz and Seattle Jazz Scene.
