Jazz Radio Stations FM

Updated on January 8, 2016

Groove In All You Do

The Music That Soothes


Where are those jazz radio stations?

With music to calm the angry nations

Of sounds to ease tensions of rappers

Music for head bobbers and clappers


Stations that’ll lets us freely think

On our own for a change

Stations not always on the brink

Of playing something wild and strange


Jazz is missing in our daily flow

Don’t always, really want to dance

We need to take it easy and slow

Not hearing about romance


Want to groove sometimes while driving

Extend courtesy to other drivers

Don’t want to hear conniving

Yield to new behind the wheel arrivers


Jazz is most peaceful

If we want peace

It’ll calm the very needful

To pleasantry at least


Jazz stations are in great need

On the FM dial

It used to be the planted seed

For a long, long while


Jazz gives us that peace of mine

Stations have abandoned us

Bring back that sound of a smooth line

Of music with an A-plus!

Feel What You Want To Feel

The instrumental music of jazz allows you to feel exactly what you want to feel. I does not usually have the singing words expressing an emotion otherwise, it allows you to enjoy the very best that music can offer. In jazz there is usually a particular instrument that is highlighted if not all of them, to take us on a brief musical voyage of listening ecstasy and considered a special treat for the mind, heart and soul.

      Yes Kim, I'm glad you came here, you mellow darling dear. It's nice to groove to jazz sometimes... All I can say is you have style, you say and wear it well. Don't ask me how I know but I can just tell. :-)

      Such a cool verse--reminiscent of the jazz sound--with a little Seuss as well--V+ for sure

      Thanks for stopping by oldies. Always good to see you. When you get a chance check out my own jazz tune here, "The Upside"

      Jazz is soothing.. it's good to drive home especially with jazz music on the radio. It's really calming you at the time you'd blow your top off because of the tight traffic.

      I like the video you put in here.. jazz and electronica. Great work here. :)

      Thank you janshares for your charming response to my jazz hub. Long live it to enjoy it. If you hadn't spoke of your hub I wouldn't have known that you existed at this time. I'm honored to be an associate hubber of yours.

      I do miss being able to put a jazz station on, word55. You said it all in this poem, why we need jazz music to soothe and relax us, especially in our cars. Yes, we can play CDs but it's not the same when you turn on the radio and don't know what favorite will play next, eliciting fond memories of great music.

      I didin't appreciate jazz until I married my hubby. Now, I find it soothing and play it often.

      Can't agree more--I find those stations can be found on public radio.

      Great work. It is always hard to choose, but this one ranks up there as one of my favorites by you. V+

      Thank you for your comment MsDora, We must preserve those things that represent peace and freedom of thought like listening to jazz does.
