To celebrate our 30th Anniversary and Jazz Appreciation Month, KUVO asked you – our listeners – to choose the songs we play throughout April!

We received nearly 6,000 votes, narrowing 100 jazz standards to your 30 favorites.

Each day of April, we played versions of that day’s Listener Pick(s) and shared the history behind the song.

Thank you for making Jazz Appreciation Month a success at KUVO!
