Philly Celebrates Jazz Award

When a dynamic figure in any walk of life departs, writers and just plain folks, usually try to recall certain events about the departed in which they may have been involved, or heard about.

April is Jazz Appreciation Month, and WRTI is celebrating throughout the month with music that showcases one of the most magical and innovative years of jazz—1959, which was 60 years ago.

WRTI weekend host Jeff Duperon’s love for music started at birth. Being a New Orleans native, it came with the territory. Jeff was raised with all types of jazz, zydeco, R&B, and everything in between on the radio at all times.
