The BBC’s pop-up jazz radio station, BBC Music Jazz, a collaboration with commercial station Jazz FM, will return from 10 Nov to 14 Nov during the London Jazz Festival, on digital, online and on the iPlayer Radio app.

Over its four days on air there will be live performances from the London festival plus an assortment of new and archive shows, including programmes presented by celebrity guests like Cerys Matthews, Colin Murray, Craig Charles, Hardeep Singh Kohli and that Will Young.

On his involvement, Young says: “I am a jazz singer at heart. Jazz is that simple connection with the audience, saying ‘here have a listen and see what you think’, so it was the biggest treat to spend an hour sharing some of my favourite jazz artists on the airwaves for the BBC Music Jazz pop-up – I felt really privileged to be asked. I hope everyone enjoys the pop-up, I know I’ll be tuning in!”

The full schedule for the pop-up jazztastic radio station is here, as a PDF no less.
