Jazz.FM91 - FM 91.1 - Toronto, ON

Canada's Primier Jazz Station

3.7/5 based on 3 reviews.

More than just a radio station, JAZZ.FM91 is Canada’s only broadcaster and registered not-for-profit charitable arts organization dedicated to e nriching the cultural, educational and ... See more community experience of their audience. Providing youth programs and partnering with educational institutions, JAZZ.FM91 gives opportunities for thousands of promising young students and emerging artists to gain experience in music and broadcasting through workshops, internships, scholarships, and jazz-related content and programs. Jazzology, the Jazz 4 Kids concert series, the JAZZ.FM91 Youth Big Band, and The Canadian Jazz Archive Online (www.canadianjazzarchive.org) are some of the JAZZ.FM91 programs and resources available to youth interested in expanding their knowledge of jazz. The station began life more than 60 years ago as CJRT-FM, Ryerson's university radio station, broadcasting an eclectic mix of educational programming, classics and jazz. Then in 1996, it was transformed when the Ontario Government reduced its annual operating stipend from $1,300,000 to zero, leaving the radio station to find its niche in one of North America's most crowded radio marketplaces. In the years since then, JAZZ.FM91 has executed a very different and expanded mission, which is to enrich the cultural, educational and community experience of our listening audience. Adhering to that mission, the station has found a favoured place in the minds of a country that, because of its diversity and musical sophistication, has embraced the concept of an all-jazz format within a non-profit, educational context. The view of jazz as a small part of the world of music is outdated; in the past few years, as music recording sales have declined, the sale of jazz and blues recordings has grown by 45%. Jazz may be growing more mainstream, but also Canada's mainstream is expanding its taste through jazz. Another indicator of the hold that jazz has: our website is one of the most visited jazz sites in the world and our iPhone app has been downloaded by almost 300,000 jazz fans around the world.
