Ed Love | 60 Years of Jazz in Detroit

"Hi there. Love here."

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.

Love’s impact transcends his time in the studio.  He has mentored and promoted musicians far and wide.  His influence on their lives and his commitment as a cultural torchbearer and multigenerational voice for the tradition of jazz is acknowledged by artists here in Detroit and throughout the world.

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.
