Genre: Jazz

For more than 33 years, Ed has delighted listeners with Destination Jazz: The Ed Love Program.

Ed’s passion for jazz and radio extends all the way back to his youth in Kansas and he has been recognized and honored numerous times over the years for his contributions to jazz and the arts. Each weekend, Ed introduces listeners to new recordings and plays the classics of years gone by – what he likes to call “Ed Love Flashbacks.”
