From the moment the station first signed on in 1974 with Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage” — beaming out 57 watts of power, about enough to hear it a block away — WCLK-FM (91.9) has been Atlanta’s best jazz station. Of course, there were times when WCLK was Atlanta’s only jazz station. But with competition or not, WCLK clearly stands apart with its smart and eclectic mix of all things jazz, plus programs that celebrate blues and gospel music.

In spite of the fact that "Jazz Flavors" has taken cumulative shots for playing some of the most vanilla jazz on any frequency, a sizable number of folks will miss it. Seems 104.1 has changed format altogether and is now giving Atlantans what we need most: more R&B (and R&B&R&B&R&more...
In spite of the fact that "Jazz Flavors" has taken cumulative shots for playing some of the most vanilla jazz on any frequency, a sizable number of folks will miss it. Seems 104.1 has changed format altogether and is now giving Atlantans what we need most: more R&B (and R&B&R&B&R& B&R...). So, here's to "Jazz Flavors." Let's hope its swan song is merely a prelude introducing some soon-to-be jazz station with a little chutzpah. less...

WCLK 91.9 FM
