This Sunday at 7 pm on WRTI, celebrate the 300th broadcast of Big Band Jazz with Bob Craig. Bob launched Big Band Jazz on October 3rd, 2010, and has been delighting audiences with this rich music ever since.

Big Band Jazz features bands from yesterday and today, and Bob interweaves the music with history and stories as only he can. His breadth of knowledge across styles and decades puts a context to these great tunes and musicians you won’t find anywhere else.
