Bop City - Internet Radio's
Jazz Center of the World

Imagine that you are back in the era when jazz was expanding beyond its perceived boundaries - when jazz was an American phenomenon.

Imagine that there is a radio station spinning records on the cutting edge of jazz, giving a nod to the origins of jazz and even sneaking in some blues now and then. Bop City is that radio station.


Why Bop City?


We love classic jazz and we enjoy sharing it with other jazz lovers.

With more and more radio stations dropping classic jazz from their formats, we decided to do something about it by creating Bop City, Vintage Jazz Internet Radio.
We present a selection of album oriented jazz that is not easily found and rarely heard on the radio.

Within our playlist, we include entire albums of artists rather than only select cuts. We feel that this gives the listener a better variety of an artists' body of work and results in a playlist with a vibe that ebbs and flows from within. This concept allows our listeners to delve deeper into the world of jazz.

Bop City is Live365's best alternative for classic jazz!

As We Near Our One Year Anniversary

Bop City sends, to all of our valued listeners and their friends and families, our warmest greetings during this holiday season. And, we wish you and yours a healthy and Happy New Year!

Our first live broadcast two weeks ago was a big success. We had the biggest listening audience of the month. Listeners from over twenty countries and fifteen states checked out the jazz. Thanks to everybody for listening.


We would love to go live for the majority of our broadcast which would provide a much better variety of music on a day to day basis from our extensive collection. It would also would allow us to do special programming. To accomplish this we need a computer solely dedicated to streaming our broadcast, which is not in the immediate financial future of Bop City.

Bop City is getting near its first anniversary of broadcasting. We've had listeners from all across the United States and all over the world. Just over the last thirty days we've had listeners from 52 countries. The breadth of the outreach of our classic jazz broadcast has exceeded our expectations.

Thanks to everyone who made donations to Bop City this past year. We greatly appreciate the help in defraying the costs of broadcasting. Donations can be made via Paypal links here on our webpage. And, if you are planning to treat someone with a gift of jazz, our webstore, in association with Amazon, has an excellent selection of CDs, books and videos. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the store.

We would appreciate hearing from you if you enjoy our broadcast. You can contact us via email at bop_city@indy.net to let us know your thoughts.
