For Super Bowl weekend SiriusXM’s Real Jazz channel 67 is featuring Radio New Orleans with music founded on the roots of jazz from the game’s host city. This special programming was put together in conjunction with community radio WWOZ, which focuses on Jazz and New Orleans heritage music.
WWOZ is broadcasting live on Saturday from Super Bowl Boulevard, which has music stages featuring New Orleans musicians like Trombone Shortly and the Rebirth Brass Band. You can listen to WWOZ online and on mobile devices.
If you enjoy listening to the roots of jazz and New Orleans music on SiriusXM or on WWOZ during this Super Bowl weekend, then you can keep listening WWOZ any time. The station has been keeping these sounds alive on the airwaves for more than 30 years, and on the internet for more than a decade. WWOZ is a great example of how community radio can support and enrich local culture, especially where commercial radio fails to reflect such a unique local heritage that continues to thrive.
