Today is National Radio Day. I hope that you have a favorite local radio station and that you listen to it regularly. If you don't, I encourage you to check your FM dial for something that moves you and grooves you.
Almost every evening, while I'm home with my family -- sometimes while we're eating dinner, sometimes after dinner is done and we're starting my kids' bathtime routine -- I turn on 90.1 FM, WRTI, Temple Public Radio, to listen to jazz music.
It's usually a perfect soundtrack for the transition from the end of the day to the beginning of the night.
I always try to tune in every Saturday night from 9pm to 12 midnight to listen to El Viaje, a program focusing on Latin jazz and salsa music. Like the name implies, I really do feel like I'm on a journey to a different country, often to my roots in Costa Rica, when I listen.
I strongly encourage you to listen to WRTI by clicking HERE and then clicking on the down arrow on the right-hand side to choose 'classical' or 'jazz,' then clicking on the play icon on the left-hand side to listen online. Enjoy!
