I’ve enjoyed many times of Ed Love being the voice of jazz on WDET. That wonderful deep voice of his always went well with jazz. Not to mention he always gave the history behind the music. I’m sure my father spent more time with Ed than I have and would probably have had more to share. Unfortunately, I have not spent as much time as I would have liked with Ed but, I’m glad he will be given honor for his contributions.

Ed Love | 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit

This post is a part of Ed Love | 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit.

Ed Love is a musical institution. Generations of Detroiters know Ed as the voice who guided us through almost 60 years of "Destination Jazz: The Ed Love Program", playing the classics and introducing us to new music each week on WDET-FM.

Now, into his sixth decade of radio, Love is still working, introducing yet another generation to the jazz tradition and the power of music.

Join us in celebrating Ed Love’s 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit.
