Tim Johnstone

Jazz Host

Tim Johnstone, known to WRTI listeners as "The Experience," is a native of Montgomery County and has been with WRTI since 2005, initially starting as a production assistant while a student at Temple University's School of Communication. He began his journey as an on-air host in 2006 where he has remained ever since.  Tim was introduced to jazz through rock artists such as Steely Dan and Frank Zappa. When he came to WRTI, he broadened his horizons by learning from the station's jazz authorities.  He now considers himself a jazz connoisseur, and lists Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Grant Green as his favorite artists. His favorite jazz album is Miles Davis' Kind of Blue. Tim can be heard Sunday mornings from Midnight to 6 am on Jazz Through the Night.
