ABC Jazz – Digital (3rd Birthday)

In 2009, ABC Jazz launched as the first continuous jazz radio station in Australia. At launch, we included Jazztrack with Mal Stanley and Jazz Up Late with Gerry Koster in our offering, giving audiences more opportunities to hear these fantastic programs. 

Since then, we’ve also welcomed Jazz Notes with Ivan Lloyd and the esteemed jazz journalist Jessica Nicholas to the airwaves. On Thursday nights you can catch a live recording, while on Friday afternoons hear Talking Jazz, with local and international jazz musicians discussing their influences and inspirations.

Mal Stanley and Jessica Nicholas hosted this special one-off breakfast program on August 24, 2012, broadcasting live from Federation Square in Melbourne alongside 774 ABC Melbourne and many commercial radio breakfast shows.
