Jeff's eclectic taste in music ranges across jazz, R&B, zydeco, gospel, classical, and funk. Born and raised in New Orleans where he began his radio career at WWOZ-FM as a morning drive-time announcer, Jeff graduated from Tulane University in 1996 and then moved to Philadelphia. He immediately became involved with the WRTI jazz scene. Jeff has volunteered at community and public radio stations for over 15 years.
In addition to his radio show, Jeff has developed a jazz studies program that is used to teach fourth and fifth graders at Bluford Elementary School in West Philadelphia about the history of jazz.
Jeff can be heard on Fridays from 6 to 10 pm, on Saturdays from 6 to 9 pm, and on Sundays from 8 pm to midnight.
Wind down your weekend with Jeff Duperon as he brings you new, creative interpretations of your favorite jazz standards. You'll enjoy fresh arrangements and orchestrations, like a Big Band version of a Monk tune, or a young vocalist bringing life to the music of Lady Day or belting out a "not-so-standard standard." Jeff occasionally features concert broadcasts from local venues and festivals. Tune in to hear what happens when new life is breathed into the classics.
