Jazz After Hours is the longest continuously running jazz program on the radio. In 2014, broadcaster and digital media artist Jeff Hanley began hosting the program, following an award winning 30 year run by the show's creator, Jim Wilke. The four hour show celebrates and nurtures the constantly evolving music that is jazz. The music doesn't sit still and neither does Jazz After Hours.

Are you a jazz musician with a new record you want the world to hear? Jazz After Hours accepts submissions of new jazz for airplay. No record promoter is required to have your music considered. The only requirements: quality, musicianship and originality. Our mission is to support and encourage the creation of fresh new jazz. Your new music could be broadcast and streamed worldwide on the PRX network.
We do not accept physical copies. In the interest of everyone’s health, your budget, and the environment, only digital submissions are accepted. We accept studio quality recordings, in .wav, .mp3, .mp4, or .aiff file formats, delivered by download. Files must be properly named and accompanied by a one-sheet of information about you and your music. Questions? Contact us through the contact form at the bottom of this page.
