December 31, 2016

Tonight at 9:00 on WILL-FM 90.9 following “The Midnight Special” we bring NPR’s “Toast of the Nation” hours of jazz music to ‘Ring in the New Year’ Artists include Fred Hersch, Ron Carter, Dee Dee Bridgewater, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Joshua Redman & Brad Melhdau.

An NPR tradition every New Year's Eve since the 1970s, Toast of the Nation is the perfect audio complement for the occasion. It's festive jazz you can party to, all night long. Spirited, improvised, and swinging, each segment stops in a Blue Note venue throughout the country and the world!
