Volunteer Host - Jazz Vibes

Name: Ron 

Show name: Jazz Vibes
Broadcast time: Sunday 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm

How long have you been with KNBA: Since 2015

Describe your show, what’s most fun for you when you’re on-air: I am honored to be an on-air ambassador for jazz, presenting to Alaska and the world the beauty of that genre of music that quite often gets eclipsed in the modern and trendy world of touch-and-go music.  Jazz music is avant garde pioneer to every other genre of music which continues to be inevitably timeless and formidable.  I love showcasing new, different and talent artists as well as paying homage to the legends and icons.  Fun?  Well, presenting the best of smooth, vocal and funky jazz, plus the classics every now and again.

First Concert: Zapp featuring Roger Troutman 

When it comes to music genres, styles, or artists do you have a “guilty pleasure”: Yes!  Even though I am a jazz guy, I really like Deep House Music that has been remixed from classic rock, disco, R&B or gospel tracks.

What are you up to when not Volunteering on the Radio: Work, work and then work!  Did I say work?  Hence, the reason why I truly enjoy bringing great music to the people. 

If you could be any animal, what would you be: My dog Jazz, because he has such a cool master that loves & spoils him!
