Jammin’ Wednesday

Wednesdays 7AM

Presented by Tony Roma

Join us every Wednesday morning on Eastside Radio for Jammin’ as we take a break from the garble garble garble that is every other radio station. There’s no need to tell your mind what to think for the rest of the day with news and information that by the afternoon will be forgotten. Instead let us open up your senses to the sounds of the world with music that touches on jazz, blues, roots, african, soul, funk, Brazilian and many other unique genres. Talking is only when necessary and even then we’ll be in a hurry to return to the music. Found Underground is a weekly segment looking at the untapped reserves that is Eastside Radio’s basement vinyl collection. So drift into the day with all the influence you need to start smiling and enjoying our beautiful city.

About Tony

Tony Roma travels from town to town with a caravan full of his eclectic sounding music. Community Radio is his passion and he has devoted over 15 years to shaping the sounds of numerous shows. Being a musical nomad means Tony simply cannot be tied down to the one gig and he often veers from one scene to the next. You can sometimes catch him driving along the country’s long highways looking for the next local radio station to share his love. From tapes and vinyl to CDs and computers, all methods of music collection are treasured by Tony and carefully stored in his 1950’s caravan. Late night radio is the best kind for Tony however coffee can also persuade him to get up early and start the day on air.
