Why JazzWorks?

Radio remains one of the most important means for sharing jazz music.  Accompanied by a human element that offers a guide to jazz music.  JazzBuffalo believes that local jazz radio provides essential support to the local jazz scene in the new digital world we live in today.

WBFO / JazzWorks is a 21st-century response by public radio stations nationwide to balance the community’s need for jazz programming with the community’s need for news and talk radio in an environment where funding remains challenging.

WBFO / JazzWorks fits as a natural extension of JazzBuffalo’s mission to build jazz awareness and appreciation.  While at the same time, connect and promote the entire Greater Buffalo jazz scene – on a local and national level.
