Sweet Jazz Notes from WRTI's Jazz Hosts

Loose or tight. Cool or hot. Smooth or not. Jazz is musical expression in its most free form. On this special edition of News and Views, jazz hosts Bob Craig, Maureen Malloy, and Bob Perkins take WRTI listeners and Meridee Duddleston on a Sunday afternoon drive through this classic American art form.

Bob joined WRTI's on-air staff in 2005. His well-rounded radio career began in 1963 as a studio engineer at WBZ in Boston. Throughout the '70s, he was an announcer and programmer at Hartford's WDRC and Boston's WHDH.
Also known as "BP with the GM," (translation: "Bob Perkins with the Good Music"), Mr. Perkins has been in the broadcasting industry for more than five decades as an on-air host, and is now commonly referred to as a Philadelphia jazz radio legend.
