Jazz on a Saturday

The month of October this year will mark forty years of Jazz on a Saturday. On 2 October 1976 in 3CR’s first studio off High Street in Armadale, Roger Beilby and John Smyth faced each other across the Studio 2 panel (handmade from discarded ABC equipment) for the first edition of Jazz on a Saturday, presented then as now on behalf of the Victorian Jazz Club. Join the program’s presenters at a small public celebration held at 7.30pm THIS Wednesday 19 October at the Victorian Jazz Club’s monthly night at the East Malvern RSL. By happy coincidence, the band playing that night will be Radio Days. Supporters of the program are welcome to attend to help celebrate the anniversary in true jazz style.

Face painting for the kids, stalls, rolling station tours and the launch of the 3CR 40th birthday t-shirt. There'll be something for everyone!
