Jazz Goes To The Movies! A Saturday (Late Night/Early-Morning) Special on WRTI

We're cooking up a treat for all of our WRTI night owls and morning birds! WRTI jazz host Ross Amico kicks off the Academy Awards weekend on Saturday morning from 2 to 6 AM with jazz tunes from famous films.

The 5 to 6 AM hour will be especially chock full of movie music, including songs that have become standard from Irving Berlin and Jerome Kern, as well as jazz renditions of themes from Yusef Lateef, Erroll Garner, Beegie Adair, Terence Blanchard, and many others. 

Stay up late - or rise and shine a little early - to celebrate music from Hollywood with WRTI!

Maureen began her radio career at WRTI in 1999 while studying broadcasting at Temple University. Determined to make it in the entertainment industry, she took advantage of all the creative opportunities presented to her at WRTI - she hosted the overnight jazz broadcasts through her entire college career, she was an arts and culture reporter, and she soaked up the jazz biz from her many WRTI mentors.
