Radio Kansas Jazz

We present Wichita’s only full-time over-the-air jazz station using HD Radio technology. This same endless stream is heard on apps like iHeart Media, TuneIn, Spotify, Radio.net, etc, as well as our built-player below. Not all apps are capable of showing the artist and title information, so listen at WichitaJazz.com whenever possible!

Radio Kansas plays Jazz on FM, too!

Born and raised in Northwest Indiana, Dave Schwan has been around music all of his life. Thanks to musical family members, Dave was exposed to jazz as early as age five and never looked back. While playing and performing music on an amateur level, Dave has had a life-long fascination with the history of jazz, American music and its contributions to the world. Dave says that jazz is a true art form and agrees with Duke Ellington’s dictum: “If it sounds good, it is good.”

He has worked as a broadcast journalist and program host for nearly 40 years.
