Since it has become more difficult to find smooth jazz on terrestrial radio, internet and satellite radio have stepped in to fill the void. Thankfully smooth jazz attracts an audience more likely to be plugged into these newer formats and more readily able to afford them. Many people are finding great stations online in places like itunes. One station that can be found there, as well as online at their own website, is Absolutely Smooth Jazz Radio on SKY.fm.
Throughout the week the SKY.fm service is free of talk interruptions and perfect for background music to soothe away the troubles of the day.
But on Sundays they take a break from the usual schedule and go live from London for a couple of hours to give their listeners a chance to get acquainted. They also use the opportunity to get to know their listeners too. Throughout the show people post messages on their forum, which Jimmy King, Smooth Jazz’s premier DJ, reads live from the studio. Listeners also use Skype and Facebook to beam messages directly into the studio from all around the world. You’ll hear listeners posting from Poughkeepsie, NY to Prague in the Czech Republic.
Check out this station. We’ll direct you to others soon too.
