Jazz London Radio was pleased to announce that Chris Hodgkins would be joining the station in September 2014 with a new weekly show called Jazz Then and Now.
The concept of the show is as Chris puts it “what it says on the tin”. Chris will be delving into the history of the music and present what is happening on the scene today with a watchful eye on British contemporary jazz. The show will run every Monday at 3pm and 8pm repeated on Wednesdays; and will complement nicely Todd’s Turntable by Todd Gordon which runs on Sundays at 12pm repeated Wednesday evenings.
Each week the play list will be posted detailing the tunes played, the musician or band, album and composers. The playlist can be found at: Jazz Then And Now
Chris Hodgkins is now presenting a programme Jazz Is…… on Pure Jazz Radio

Jazz is a broad church that has developed an incredibly diverse range of musics with a global reach. When there is an altercation in the choir stalls about what jazz is, some one is reinventing jazz and building an extension to the church. The programme Jazz Is illustrates the rich history of jazz and the vibrant happening jazz of today.
Each week the play list will be posted detailing the tunes played, the musician or band, album and composers. The playlist can be found at: Jazz Is….
Chris’ blog Complaints In Wonderland contains a wealth of material dealing with politics, the vexatious question of adequate arts funding for jazz, economics, and like a digital Henry Root, complaints to companies.
