Modern Jazz Today joins UMFM's Broadcast Schedule
on May 25,2016 by michael
Beginning this Friday, May 27th and running two-hours weekly, our late-night / early-morning listeners will have something new to tune into as UMFM is please to announce we will be syndicating Modern Jazz Today from 5-7am. MJT focuses on the NOW and while it originates out of the U.S. the program frequently features Canadian artists, making it a welcome addition to our programming.
The vision for the program - "To create a program that will inform and inspire listeners by focusing on today’s jazz improvisational makers, standard’s arrangers and original composers" - is one that UMFM can get behind as informing and inspiring listeners are primary goals for all our original programs.
We love JAZZ in all its variations and Modern Jazz Today is just one colour in the palette of jazz programming at UMFM that also includes Swing Radio (Tuesday 2-3pm), Rhythm & Sound (Wednesday 1-2:30pm), Expansive Prairie Skies (Friday 1-3am) Fascinating Rhythm (Sunday 10am-Noon) and 52nd Street Jazz (Sunday 8-9pm) and we hope that if you love jazz too, you'll start your Friday morning - or finish your Thursday night - with Modern Jazz Today.

The UMFM family is very saddened to hear about the passing of Mr. Christopher Baron, a longtime friend, listener and supporter of the radio station. Chris passed away last weekend after a long struggle with illness and he will certainly be missed.
He was a strong supporter of more than a few of our shows, and it wasn't a rare occurence to hear from him out of the blue over the years to talk about some of the new music he had heard on UMFM and how he had enjoyed it. It was also great to see him each year when he came to see us in the fall during our Pledge drive and to hear him talk so positively about the impact that music had in his life and how he championed UMFM to his family, friends and colleagues.
Rest In Peace Chris, the support of a great man like you was immense for our station and you certainly will be missed.
