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!

For the month of November, 2013, Bop City set new records for listenership - 74 different countries and 95 different metropolitan areas in the United States listened to our broadcast of Classic Jazz!

Chicago is our number one metro area with listenership 4.5 times the number of hours over second place.  Big and huge thanks to The Windy City!

We have a new stack of cuts that are being uploaded to the broadcast.  We pride ourselves on having the best variety of Classic Jazz on the internet.

Thanks for listening to Bop City!
