"America's Jazz Station"
Location: Long Beach
Owner: Cal State University, Long Beach
Format: Traditional Jazz and Blues
Carried by satellite through Playboy Enterprises to cable systems as far as Europe and the Virgin Islands, KLON indeed has the reach to make its claim as "America's Jazz Station." This is classic "straight-ahead" American jazz, too, none of that yuppie wallpaper stuff, focused on bebop, big band music, and other accoustic jazz traditions. You won't hear fusion music here.
