Top 5 Radio Shows for Jazz on Mixcloud

So listening to Jazz FM isn't for you, nor is Radio 3. It doesn't give you anything wildly different, it's okay to listen to... sometimes, but apart from that it just doesn't quite hit the spot. 

Here's a list of my top 5 radio shows on Mixcloud that I enjoy listening to and frequently return to, when the big stations aren't quite cutting it. 

Check out the The Elektrik Cave mixcloud for the full list of people I follow.

Jazzcat presents Sunday Mornings

Every Sunday, I always enjoy listening to a soulful mix of tracks. It's perfect for Sunday mornings.
Not only that, but Jazzcat (also known as Max) has a show on Ness Radio. Again, perfect for those ears of yours.

Again, another show - always playing timeless tracks with different influences. If you're not down for just straight Jazz, than this show does exactly that. Sometimes you just fancy a little nu-jazz and a few tracks with techno and ambient electronic influences.

Goes without saying, Gilles Peterson perfectly mixes it all. Done with such elegance and class - some of my favourite shows.

Every week without fail I'll listen to at least 10 minutes of the show to find out whats new. And I always leave with something new to add to my growing list of digital music. If it really blows me away, you know I'll be trying to find a copy on vinyl too. 


Throwing Shade

On Saturday's I like to get my fix of worldwide Jazz tunes. This is the place to go. From 1-2pm I enjoy listening to Throwing Shade on NTS, and then I top up my jazz fix by flicking over to BBC 6 Music for Gilles Peterson at 3pm, where I know I can get a really nice continuation of worldwide music.
