WRUR 88.5 Different Radio

jazz

Since 1991, Sundays at 6PM have been greeted with the presentation of jazz standards by Ruth Elaine, a volunteer host on WRUR. Through the years, Sunday Session has developed a following, with dedicated listeners tuning in for the program. After 26 years, Ruth Elaine has decided to retire her program. She wishes her listeners well. A very private person, Ruth Elaine had a strong presence on the the radio. 

Today's Jazz Corner from Jeff Spevak and Scott Regan.

An NPR tradition every New Year's Eve since the 1970s, Toast of the Nation is the perfect audio complement for the occasion. It's jazz that you can party to, all night long with four countdowns to midnight and four different renditions of "Auld Lang Syne" in all continental time zones. Spirited, improvised, grooving and swinging, each segment is a stop in a sequence of celebrations, contributing something new to the musical feast. Eight hours of music will start at 9pm and continue throughout the night until 5am.
