Jazz City is New York’s newest Jazz radio program! We broadcast every Sunday from 6:30PM – 8:00PM. I, Peter Douskalis, and Stefanie Sintakis, host the show. Personally, I come from a jazz guitar performance background and have been involved in the music industry for several years as a performer, recording artist, composer, and educator.
Jazz City is a program that promotes the music of all musicians that desire. We play the works of new and upcoming musicians, experienced musicians, and classics from throughout the history of Jazz. But the show is not only about the jazz itself. It is also about Greek musicians in the community and around the world that play jazz such as myself, Spiros Exaras, and composer Kyriakos Sfetsas.
The program has had a number of guests and we have even performed live in the studio. This show allows the listener to not only be exposed to new and old jazz music, but to also learn about the music they are listening to, the musicians, and what it is like to be a professional performer. Jazz City takes submissions from artists wishing to receive airplay and promotion simply by submitting two or three songs and a biography to me at email@example.com. So far we have received over 400 song submissions from artists all over the world including, but not limited to: Italy, Bulgaria, England, Australia, New Zealand, France, Brazil, Canada, Spain, and many more countries.
Jazz is a worldwide music that has no limitations. It is for this reason that we play all styles such as swing, funk, Latin, bebop, blues, and electronic. Listeners are welcome to call in at 718.362.5757. Join the fun, talk to our guests and us, and be exposed to a wonderful world of jazz music.
