Journeying from Bebop to Spiritual through Cosmic to Free, and covering all in between; Andy will play the music you need to hear on a Sunday afternoon. Broadcasting every second Sunday of the month at 4pm.

Andy had a picture of his ideal radio show in mind. Many years ago, Donald Fagen wrote a song called The Nightfly. It described the story a lone-wolf disc jockey, passing the night on the fictional WJAZ, which provided “jazz and conversation from the foot of Mount Belzoni”. The cover of the album showed Fagen doing two things you wouldn’t be permitted to do in a modern radio studio: one is smoking, the other is actually playing records… but, you are stuck with Andrew Backhouse. Andy will be covering Jazz Standards as well as a great selection of newer releases.
