Jazz Straight Ahead

Wednesdays, 8 p.m.-midnight

Jazz Straight Ahead airs Wednesday evenings from 8 p.m. to midnight, and is heading into its 27th year on the air. The show was produced and hosted by the late broadcaster and musician John Tegler, known as a “walking encyclopedia of jazz” by many at WEAA, until his passing in October 2014. Now carried on by his sons, Jan and Eric Tegler, Jazz Straight Ahead continues to play the early traditional jazz, swing, cool school, bebop, hard bop, and more that listeners have come to love.
