Hosted by Melanie O'Reilly

Melanie's award-winning series Jazz on the Bay, in which she interviewed legendary luminaries from the world of jazz, was broadcast on RTE Radio 1 for six seasons. The programm featured conversations with Dave Brubeck, Chick Corea, Clint Eastwood, Nancy Wilson, Bobby McFerrin and a host of other stars. Well received during its run, Jazz on the Bay won a PPI/Irish National Radio Award for Music Specialist Programm of the Year. "It was an extraordinary experience being in the presence of such jazz icons and this had a profound effect on me. The words of Brubeck echo in my ear: Jazz stands for freedomů Get out there and improvise, and take chances". The series is currently being broadcast every last Sunday of the month.
