Straight Ahead

Saturday, 6 to 9 pm

Jeff Duperon hosts a hard-driving, three-hour romp combining today's movers-and-shakers in jazz with the classic and familiar. Every show includes a little bit of something old, then a lot of something new, a mix of something borrowed, and a dash of something blue. Tune in every Saturday night to hear the best regional artists, the "young lions" of jazz, and the tunes you've heard a million times but could listen to every single day.
