Jazz90.1 is Rochester’s home for real jazz. We broadcast 24 hours a day, seven days a week at 90.1 FM, and over the Internet. (Listen now!) We play more hours of live, local jazz than any radio station in the United States. If you already love jazz, or if you’d like to know more about it, check us out. If you have a taste for swing, funk, improvisation, and experimentation — then your radio or computer should be locked on Jazz90.1.

Our Mission

At Jazz90.1, we believe that jazz is a living music. That’s why half our broadcast hours are focused on current artists who are committed to moving the music forward. Jazz90.1 plays more new music than any radio station in the U.S. On the flip side, we also play a heaping portion of the classics, names like Ella Fitzgerald, Duke Ellington, Wayne Shorter, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, and many more. When you listen to Jazz90.1, you get the best new jazz, and the best jazz of all time.

Jazz90.1 is YOUR Station!

The great thing about Jazz90.1 is that it’s YOUR station. We’re a community jazz station, supported by thousands of members from Rochester and elsewhere who believe in jazz, and who believe that it should occupy a place of honor on the airwaves. Are you one of those people? Then support Jazz90.1! Click here for more information on becoming a member. If you’d like to become a Jazz90.1 business underwriter, you can call 585.966.2660. No matter how you support us, we hope that we can count on your pledges to keep one of the nation’s last 24/7/365 jazz stations on the air.

Breaking Through Barriers

Jazz90.1 is also an important outlet for music and voices that don’t make it onto commercial radio. Our longest-running show is The Polka Bandstand Show heard every Saturday from 10 a.m. – noon. We also feature the Lithuanian-language Dainos Aidas; The German Radio Program; and La Nueva Era in the Morning, a 4-hour program of Latin music (broadcast in Spanish). You don’t need a plane ticket and passport to expand your horizons…all you need is a radio or computer tuned to Jazz90.1. (Check out our program schedule for more information.)
