How to read these playlists...

Programs air on Friday and Saturday nights in most parts of the US starting at Midnight Eastern Time (5 AM GMT). Friday Midnight is the start of Saturday morning, and Saturday Midnight is Sunday morning so we designate them Saturday and Sunday shows. Some stations shift the program an hour or more later.

Each program is four hours and some stations may repeat some hours after the first four. The last piece at the end of each hour is an unannounced 40-sec fill segment that is not heard on all stations.  Music heard on this program can be ordered online from amazon.com and all amazon purchases help support Jazz After Hours - click the amazon.com logo at the bottom of the page to place your order, and thanks!

If you're not a night owl, dar.fm is an easy way to record the show for later listening.

Listeners have also suggested using the Public Radio Player.
