Gil's shows are a 'must-listen' for students of the blues and the pros. I rely on his selections of what is worthy to hear, both new and old, as there is no way I could possibly keep up with the staggering amount of new music out there by myself. Thanks Gil, you've been pointing me in the right direction every week for many years now! Charlie

  • 8pm-midnight, Sunday: Night Train w/ Ted Grossman
    • Since 1977, Ted has devoted himself to collecting and popularizing the jazz and big band music of the '30's and 40's. Over the past twenty years, he has accumulated an enviable collection of vintage performances including WWII recordings, Glen Miller concerts and Armed Forces Radio Services broadcasts. Listeners can tune in to Night Train each week to hear performances by the artists and ensembles who shaped jazz along with Ted's anecdotes and knowledgeable commentary. But Ted's musical interests don't end there. You will also find him playing selections from classic modern recordings.

      Because of the resurgence of interest in big band music and the work of early jazz composers, Ted finds that his audience comes from a surprisingly broad cross-section of the South Florida population. When they listen to Night Train, older fans recall the music of their youth, he asserts, and younger listeners, when they take the time, are surprised that the past can be so enjoyable. To hear four hours of some of the most exciting and vital jazz performances ever put on record, just set your dial to WLRN 91.3 FM Sundays from 8 pm to midnight for Ted Grossman's Night Train.
