What a great station!

Peter White, Boney James, the Rippingtons, Larry Carlton, FourPlay, Diana Krall, Basia, and more.

They even threw in a little Booker T playing "Green Onions.

I love the combo of calmness blended with liveliness and energy.

Interesting you should mention Sanborn.  The station played one of his shortly after my last post.  It wasn't "Chicago Song" though.  Darn.  But more days ahead!

 

Have a great week, everyone.

Re: Smooth jazz radio station

I don't have any local smooth jazz stations. I do have digital TV cable and get a smooth jazz station through my cable package. I call it Cheesecake Factory Jazz, because that's often the kind of music they play at the Cheesecake Factory restaurants.

I guess Cheesecake Factory knows what sells.  

 

The first time I ever went to one, I was expecting something small and simple like they show on "Big Bang Theory."  I was surprised to find it felt like walking into a Vegas casino - very fancy with tall columns and padded booths with tall potted palms all over.  Although I must say I did not notice the music they were playing.  It was kind of noisy.

 

I also wanted to add that my tv cable provider has music stations too, including the smooth jazz genre.  I tried that but it's not the same as having a local station with a real dj along with local news and weather and such.  I like that local connection.

Re: Smooth jazz radio station

In the Dallas-Fort Worth area we used to have a smooth jazz station called The Oasis.  I listened to it all the time.  It's hard to believe in a metropolitan area of this size, there isn't a single smooth jazz station.

 

I have lots of the artists' CDs loaded into iTunes and listen to them at work.  I enjoy the music of Boney James, Diana Krall, Chris Botti, Joe Sample, Dave Koz, and many, many others.

Re: Smooth jazz radio station

I so enjoy Smooth Jazz.  It is calming and can be romantic as well.  Don't know where you live but I do have a station that features it on Sundays during the hours of brunch.  Also, it's on satellite to listen to as well.  On Direct TV it's in the 800's somewhere.  Have a nice drink and listen to some smooth jazz.
