Jazz with Jeff Duperon

Friday, 6 to 10 pm

Kick off your weekend with Jeff Duperon as he takes a cruise through the current. Jeff brings you the best of the new releases, and acts as a weekend planner. If there's music going on in the area, he'll tell you where to find it. And he always gets a visit from a visiting performer to talk about their music. Spend your Friday nights with Jeff…he'll help you find a new favorite artist, album, or piece of music.
