Ed Love is my guru. So much so, I once had a taco named after him at a taqueria I once owned in North Vancouver, Canada.

Nick Austin mentioned this on air when he was on Sundays around 2012ish. I listened to WDET at work and put it over the speakers for customers to hear. The Ed Love taco/burrito was my top seller. It had beef brisket, white cheddar, and sweet and tangy bbq sauce with creamy coleslaw.

All thanks to Ed for being the one who taught me how to love and appreciate jazz. 31 years strong I have been listening to WDET. Bless this man.

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.

In 2020, Ed Love reached 60 years on the air. Check out tributes and accolades for his six decades of radio.
