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.

If you are missing the hip jazz nights at Chez Nora we used to play, there's this cozy hip spot in Northside on Hamilton Ave. called The LISTING LOON. It's in a space that used to be a tango dance studio next to the bike shop SPUN BICYCLES. The address is 4124 Hamilton Ave. They have a nice piano at The Listing Loon as well as all kinds of unique beers and a full bar. I'm playing piano there this Wednesday at 8pm with Bryan Berwanger on bass & Brendan Blumer on drums.
