Computer savvy jazz fans have a new source of musical entertainment at their fingertips. Veteran Pennsylvania broadcaster, journalist and producer Russ Neff has revived his My Favorite Things broadcast as an online radio show. The program is available for listening at Neff’s website, http://www.mftjazz.com.

During the 1970's & 1980's Neff produced & hosted My Favorite Things as a jazz radio program. Over the years the program had several broadcast homes in the Central Pennsylvania region. It has not been heard since the final broadcast in December of 1991.

While the medium is the Internet instead of a radio broadcast, fans of the program will find much that is familiar when they log on to http://www.mftjazz.com. However, just as the musical spectrum continues to develop, the spectrum of music presented on My Favorite Things has grown. According to Neff, “My Favorite Things online is not just a recreation of an old radio show, it is an evolving entity.”

Neff maintains an emphasis on the music, which he intersperses with his insightful and succinct commentary. Each one-hour program has a natural musical flow from start to finish with occasional surprises or musical side trips along the way. As Neff puts it, “My Favorite Things is not your typical jazz show.”

Russ Neff, is a co founder of the Central PA Friends of Jazz, a regional jazz society that is celebrating its 25th year of operations. In 1990 he was selected as the Jazz feature writer and reviewer for the Harrisburg Patriot News, a position he held for 12 years. In 2000 Neff was inducted into the Central PA Jazz Hall of Fame and in 2005 was honored by the city of Harrisburg, PA for his contributions to the cultural life of the region

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
