Bob Parlocha, host of WFMT Radio Network’s Jazz with Bob Parlocha since its inception in 1995, passed away unexpectedly March 15, 2015. Bob died of a heart attack at the age of 76, he had been rehabilitating from an illness over the past year.

In addition to hosting his popular radio program – broadcast by KUVO and other stations across the United States – Bob was a tenor and soprano saxophone player, host of the Dinner Jazz Show on KJAZ and later the station’s music director. Bob was also a passionate gourmet cook.

Jazz fans and stations across the nation will miss Bob’s presence immensely.

Moving forward, Jazz with Bob Parlocha will blend new voices with Bob’s archives.
