Talking Jazz Live - Tuesday
Talking Jazz Live Schedule

Blue Plate Radio's Talking Jazz Live is a weekly live phone-in with many of your favorite smooth jazz artists.  Coming up - We're on Summer Hiatus!

Our live chats begin Tuesday's at 9pm Eastern/6pm Pacific and last for 30 minutes or longer, depending on the guest we're chatting with.  The conversation is informal and the program is more like Jimmy Kimmel than Larry King.  All phone-ins are recorded and then later edited and posted as podcasts on acast, iTunes and Stitcher.  Some of our guests have included:

  • Peter White
  • Jeff Lorber
  • Will Donato
  • Maysa
  • Brian Culbertson
  • Boney James

and many more. So tune in Tuesday's at 9pm Eastern and 6pm Pacific for some very interesting LIVE conversation with some of your favorite jazz artists.  You might just receive FREE STUFF if we use your question on the air!
