Fridays On WFIU: All That Jazz

Afterglow, Night Lights, and Jazz at Lincoln Center find a new Friday evening home starting July 6.

WFIU brings all its nighttime local jazz to one place!

Starting July 6, we’re ushering in a new lineup that gives you more Friday night jazz than ever!

At 8 p.m. after Fresh Air, listen in at a new time for Afterglow, David Brent Johnson’s trip through decades of jazz and American popular song. Then at 9, it’s Standards by Starlight, the new Great American Songbook program hosted by Afterglow’s founder and longtime host, Dick Bishop.

Stay tuned at 10 for a WFIU institution in a new timeslot: Night Lights, a weekly program of Cold War-era jazz that moves from its longtime location at 11 p.m. on Saturdays. Then at 11, Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Peabody Award-winning series that offers an exclusive live celebration of America’s original art form. Late on Friday and Saturday nights, Bob Parlocha keeps the party going from midnight into the overnight hours.

Beale Street Caravan moves from Friday nights to Night Lights’ old home — Saturdays at 11 after Afropop Worldwide —  putting all of WFIU’s nighttime jazz in one irresistible place!
