Welcome to the Jazz Network 24/7 or more commonly known as the JazzNet247 website.

Unfortunately this Radio Station has been another victim of Putin's War in Ukraine, the cost of living has risen by circa 20% in the last month with a further 20% plus rise due in the month's ahead, consequently I can no longer afford to keep the project running, so after 28 years of helping today's jazz artists, and 63 in the entertainment business it all comes to an end.

Therefore from March 31st 2022 I have to terminate the subscription to our host broadcaster LIVE365 who pay our licencing and royalties fees for all of the music that is broadcasted, I would never dream of broadcasting illegally and depriving the artists of the income which they receive for their recordings, albeit meagre in jazz terms.

I have no outside funding or sponsorships and have never asked the artists, servicing agents or record companies for any monies during the past 28 years and although I was set to stop broadcasting in 2020, the onset of the Covid pandemic meant that artists were dependent upon stations like mine to support their releases and so I continued as long as I could.

I would like to thank the tens of thousands of listeners who tuned in, but especially to the many daily listeners on five continents who tune in faithfully for up to 18 hours every day to the station, I am truly sorry that I must end the project, I hope that I have introduced some new artists and songs to you, I thank you all.

I am hugely grateful to 123CONNECT.CO.UK in the UK headed by my good friend Jeff Collins for more than 30 years for his support to keep this website alive and hopefully visitors might find some Jazz Articles of interest and also Album Reviews like my latest Dave Brubeck release on Brubeck Editions for the DOWNBEAT MAGAZINE.

The project also supports the 4 Land's Region of Central Europe of Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Liechtenstein where we live and I showcase the beautiful Lakes and Mountains on the website page banners (Tip: Press F5 on a PC , or Cmd & R on a Mac on your keyboard to view other top banner images) and on the GALLERY PAGE. Visit the 4 LAND'S REGION section to learn more about the Must See Areas.

Best wishes and many thanks from Wes George
