Jazz with OT

Sundays at 10 PM
  • Hosted by Oscar Treadwell

In the Summer of 2005 Cincinnati Public Radio was delighted to announce the return of Oscar Treadwell to Cincinnati’s airwaves. The beloved former WGUC and WVXU jazz host reprised Jazz with OT on 91.7 WVXU every Sunday evening. As a tribute to OT, these programs continue, taking jazz fans on a wonderful musical journey. In these programs OT spins the tunes of the jazz masters, tells their stories, and provides counterpoint with his beautiful poetry narrations.

Grammy Award-winning jazz musician, vocalist, songwriter and producer, Cassandra Wilson, will be performing on Friday, March 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Hall Auditorium, 101 S. Campus Ave, on Miami University’s Oxford campus. Wilson’s 2015 tour is an otherworldly musical homage to legendary jazz vocalist Billie Holiday on the 100th anniversary of the singer's birth. "A dream of mine is happening," said Wilson, "I've been in love with Billie Holiday's voice since the moment I heard it, and she has inspired me throughout my career."
