WBGO and NPR/music at the Montreal Jazz Festival

by Alex W. Rodriguez

“Last month, my station, WBGO, celebrated its 32nd birthday. Strangely enough, another jazz titan turns the same age this Saturday: the Montreal International Jazz Festival. One of the largest music festivals of any kind in the world, it runs from June 25 through July 4.

The two of us have grown up together. WBGO’s Michael Bourne and Becca Pulliam first collaborated with the festival in the 1990s, and the station began live remote broadcasts from Montreal in 2004. This weekend, WBGO will be back in Montreal for another live broadcast.”
