Sunday Nights at 9:00 pm to Midnight

Jazz has long been synonymous with the radio stations of the Maine Public Broadcasting Network, and the tradition continues every Sunday night with host Rich Tozier. Music from the legends, the up-and-comers and even the occasional live in-studio performance are all featured for three hours every Sunday beginning at 9:00 pm.

Email Rich Tozier to attend live showwhen these live performances occur at MPBN's Bangor studio, a limited number of free tickets are usually available. To attend, contact host Rich Tozier at rtozier@mpbn.net or leave word at (207) 404-5128. For directions to MPBN's Bangor facility, click here.

Valued listeners: Jazz Tonight with Rich Tozier is no longer available for on demand listening. An internal audit determined that we are not allowed to offer downloads of the program on demand due to digital music copyright regulations; this is a way that musicians and artists protect themselves from entities (be it individuals or organizations) distributing free digital copies of their music. We are examining other options to make Jazz Tonight more available in the future, such as other times that the program might be streamed. We appreciate your understanding and your support.

We invite you to listen to Jazz Tonight at the following days and times:

 

Friday evenings from 9 to midnight (using the player found below on this page)

Sunday evenings from 9 to midnight (via the MPBN Radio live stream)
