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!

We always attempt to keep adding new music to Bop City. We have an already fantastic playlist, you can listen twenty-four hours a day for more than eleven straight days and never hear the same cut, but...

This week a loyal listener helped out and donated three incredible CDs to add to the playlist - Undercurrent by Kenny Drew, John Jenkins with Kenny Burrell, and thanks to a heads up from Marc "JazzWax Myers, Lennie Tristano, Chicago April, 1951.

Incredibly, in the last month, seventy-five different countries have listened to Bop City, so we are definitely spreading America's greatest art form to the rest of the world.
