Jazz with Bob Parlocha
WSIE (88.7 FM)

Whether you're driving home from work or a gig or a date along a near-deserted highway, propelled by an urgent walking bass and ride cymbal, or sitting in a third-floor walkup lamenting lost love to the moody musings of a tenor sax, the hours after midnight seem like the perfect time for jazz radio. And Bob Parlocha, who holds down the overnight shift for WSIE on weekends, is a most agreeable late-night companion. With a suave delivery that laces a comforting, laid-back cool with just the right amount of caffeinated enthusiasm, Parlocha serves up a thoughtful brew of jazz styles, mixing hard bop, Latin, big band and vocal cuts while discussing both lesser-known musicians and the greats of jazz with a true fan's ear for detail.
