Local Jazz Music Performances at WRTI Will Be Available Nationally

In the last few years, Philadelphia's jazz and classical station, WRTI, has been making big investments in its studio and programming, including the ability to record and film live performances. Local artists are in the mix of already-recorded performances via their VuHaus platform. Now, they're part of the newly launched microsite “Live Sessions from NPR Music Stations Across America.” The campaign launched officially on November 11, 2019, and will allow regional, national, and international audiences to be exposed to the jazz performed in our city. We talked with station stalwart J. Michael Harrison about what it means for our community.
