Sunday 12:00pm - 2:00pm

On the Los Angeles radio scene since 1981, Nick Tyler's introduction to jazz came at Nick's first radio job, in 1969, at KOOL-AM/Phoenix, when the all-night DJ turned him on to his "secret stash" of jazz albums that were for use only after midnight. That and an association with Phoenix jazz radio personality Herb Johnson("Mr. J") cinched his interest in America's true art form.

Joining KKGO-FM in 1983, Nick then worked with such radio legends Chuck Niles, Jim Gosa and Sam Fields. Says Nick, "These men introduced me to the jazz greats and I've been a fan ever since. I am truly blessed to have worked with some on the best people in radio. After 16 years in classical music, I am grateful for the opportunity to get back to jazz here at 88.1"
