Jazz with Bob Parlocha Archives

  Bob Parlocha was a jazz radio institution. He began spinning disks for KJAZ-FM over four decades ago. After the demise of KJAZ, Bob began syndicating, Jazz with Bob Parlocha through the new WFMT Jazz Network. This program filled the late night airwaves in many cities across the USA bringing that KJAZ esthetic nationwide for about 20 years until Bob's death in 2015. Ironically, it was not carried on KCSM-FM, the de-facto KJAZ successor in the Bay Area, until several years after its debut. After his death, WFMT approached KCSM to see if it would like to produce the overnight show. KCSM agreed and "Jazz with ..." featuring Greg Bridges and Lee Thomas (two of Bob's former colleagues at KJAZ) soon followed. Unfortunately, after about a year KCSM was unable to continue production so WFMT launched Jazz Network (with Chicago-based announcers) in its place.

Additional programs will be posted as time permits. Many thanks to Mark Rabin for his collection of Jazz with Bob Parlocha programs from 2015. Kudos to Geoff Dunlop for his contribution of numerous programs from 2012 - 2016.

In the late 1980s while at KJAZ-FM Alameda, Bob produced a series, In the Spotlight: Black Masters. The episodes focused on Miles Davis can be found below. Kudos to Pam Parlocha, Bob's widow, who initiated the digitization of the original recordings and Ananda G. Brady who completed the process for 30+ programs.
