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!

Bop City is History!

Unfortunately Bop City could not garner enough listeners to continue on Radionomy.  Therefore, the plug is officially pulled on what was one of the best independent classic jazz internet radio stations that ever existed.

Big business wins again.

Happy Trails.

Goodbye playlist on 8Tracks.

We continue to add cuts to out playlist of the best classic jazz in history.  Click the button to check out the broadcast!


Bop City listeners:  FYI - Occasionally you will here a two minute run of jazz and promos.  These are fillers that take the place of commercials when Radionomy is not targeting a run of commercials.  Thanks for listening to Bop City!

Adding Wes Montgomery!

Today we are adding a bunch of Wes Montgomery to the playlist.

It's going to be tough making this work on Radionomy because they require a certain number of listening hours to stay on their network. Since jazz is a niche genre these days, maintaining a audience is a challenge. So, give Bop City a listen and please, spread the word. Thank you!

Goodbye Playlist

Thanks to 8Tracks, we have made a goodbye playlist that you can access at this link:

Goodbye Playlist!

If we put anything together regarding a new station, doing a shown on another station, etc., we will share that information here.  So check back now and again, and enjoy our goodbye playlist.  All of the cuts came from the collection of the late artist James Spencer Russell.

Thanks for listening to Bop City!
