"The Divine One" - Jazz chanteuse Sarah Vaughan in 1946

To celebrate Jazz Appreciation Month, we asked members of the jazz and arts community to tell us what jazz tune they would like to listen to right now. 

Since the start of April, we’ve been playing their responses, along with the music they favored.  We’re sure you have heard some of the features during jazz programming – explanations of the selections from Mike Merritt, Lisa Hilton, Sherie Maricle, and many others. 

Now it’s your turn to tell us what you want to hear! 

If you could be listening to any jazz song right now, what would it be? Leave your response below in the comments section, along with a short description of what draws you to that piece.

We will feature your chosen selections on a special, extended request show on Wednesday, April 27th starting at 9 PM.  

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.
