Jonathan Schwartz : About

Wednesday through Friday at Noon on The Jonathan Channel stream, Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at noon on 93.9 FM

An eclectic mix of american popular standards, classical, rock and roll, jazz and "good talk" with host Jonathan Schwartz. He was, for four years, the artistic director of Lincoln Center's American Songbook series, and for five years appeared as the music correspondent on NBC's Sunday Today Show. He is also an accomplished author, cultural commentator and jazz singer. He's a diehard Red Sox fan (is there any other kind?), which shows a certain dedication and passion against all odds, and he winds down the weekend with his unique take on the cultural life of the city, both as an observer and participant. Tune in for a very particular take on New York life.
