April 2021 is Jazz Appreciation Month!
As we jazz lovers wait impatiently for the Gulf Jazz Society to once again sponsor live jazz events in Panama City, we are pleased to reveal to everyone a well-kept secret that has existed for a long time at WKGC FM radio operated by Gulf Coast State College. This secret is of particular interest to jazz enthusiasts who appreciate fine recorded jazz.
WKGC (90.7) FM HD2 broadcasts a jazz show entitled “Jazz ‘til Tomorrow” that airs 24 hours per day, every day. This show features the finest selection of straight-ahead jazz with short, intelligent identifying comments naming artists and tunes following every three or so pieces. This narration is brief and informative without being annoying.
There are four ways to tune in the High Definition (HD-2) component of WKGC FM:
- Direct tune to 90.7 HD-2 if you own an FM radio with HD capability.
- Direct tune to 90.7 HD-2 on the radio on newer model cars by turning
the manual tuning knob 1 click past 90.7.
- Select WKGC web site on your PC, laptop or phone
- Install the Tune-In app on your smart-phone.
- Perhaps the easiest way to listen to Jazz ‘til Tomorrow is to use the features of the Amazon Echo, Dot, or Show by stating: “Alexa, Play WKGC FM, HD-2”.
