The show includes jazz from early in the 20th century until the present. We’ll keep you up to date with the latest releases, but also play a range of pleasant, listenable jazz from all eras which features your favourite singers and musicians. We try to play as many local jazz musicians as we can! There’s something on this show for all jazz fans….and we may even convert non-believers into jazz enthusiasts!
Just Jazz has featured on The Pulse since 1988 and was instigated by eminent Geelong jazz aficionado, Dave Parsons. The program has been steered by many fine presenters over the years, including jazz lion Mace Francis.

You can hear jazz three times a week: Mondays 10pm – midnight, Tuesdays 3am – 4am and Sundays 11am – 4pm with a bunch of experienced presenters who love what they do. Many of them are musicians you may have heard around Geelong: others are long-time jazz fans.
