Jazz has always been a key ingredient in WBOI's rich mix of diverse musical offerings, and one volunteer host, Bruce Reidenbach, has been spinning those discs right here at the station for 33 years.
His current show, hosted with Bill Forsythe, is "The Friday Vibe", featuring traditional jazz from the 1950's to the present day. The show's mission? Getting the listener into their weekend vibe with style!
As WBOI's Julia Meek continues to take her monthly looks "Behind the Mic," she invited Reidenbach into the studio to discuss what drives his passion for the genre, and his love for public broadcasting.
WBOI's Friday Vibe

WBOI's Julia Meek will continue to look "Behind the Mic" at one of NIPR's show hosts each month, so watch for more of these interviews throughout the year.
