BROADCAST ARCHITECTURE's SMOOTH JAZZ NETWORK will debut "The Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown" this weekend (6/9-10). Markets airing the two-hour program include CHICAGO, MIAMI, PHOENIX, BALTIMORE and others.
Hosted by BA President ALLEN KEPLER, the countdown will feature the hottest Smooth Jazz tracks of the week based on monitored airplay provided by MEDIABASE, as well as special features designed to attract and hold the attention of Smooth Jazz listeners around the country.
"The countdown spotlights top 20 hits from Smooth Jazz stars such as BONEY JAMES, PETER WHITE, NORMAN BROWN, RICK BRAUN and JEFF LORBER, along with crossover artists JOHN LEGEND, NORAH JONES and more," KEPLER said. "We also have exclusive conversations with SIMPLY RED's MICK HUCKNALL, teenage sensation KELLY SWEET, and PAUL BROWN on why he is widely considered the 'BABYFACE of Smooth Jazz."
Regular features of the "Smooth Jazz Top 20 Countdown" include the "Feedback Track," where listeners nationwide can log on to www.smoothjazztop20.com to voice their opinions on an up-and-coming track; information on the Smooth Jazz concert season; and a sneak peek of a "Chartbound" track that could make the top 20 soon.
