Ed Love has been there for me for the last 40 years, ever since I came home from the Army in the early ‘80s and started listening to WDET. Mr. Love has brought so much knowledge and history of jazz music in America. His soothing baritone voice kept me going when I was out on the road at night. He is a Detroit legend.

God Bless You, Mr. Love, and thank you!


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.
