Ed Love epitomizes Jazz. I’m 60 years old & have been listening to him on WDET for over half my life. A significant portion of my extensive jazz music collection stems from Ed’s playlist over the years. His knowledge of the genre is encyclopedic. My wife & I used to really enjoy listening to his Christmas “switching in the kitchen” program. I only had the pleasure of meeting him once at a Detroit Jazz Festival when he was at a WDET booth. He was very gracious & accommodating. Whenever I pledged my support to public radio during his program I would tell him to keep on keeping on which I hope he continues to do because I can’t imagine Sunday nights without him!

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.

Stay connected to Detroit
