Hot, Sweet and Jazzy is a program that brings the fun back into music. A team of presenters brings you interesting and enjoyable music, much of it not available on Australian radio, along with entertaining and informative chat.
The music is jazz and jazz-aligned, but covering many possible definitions of ‘jazz’! There are no limits to the program’s musical sources, but Australian musicians provide an important part of the material. The show is probably most suitable for afternoon and evening.
Hot, Sweet and Jazzy’s presenters are all music enthusiasts and many are practising musicians:
” Peter Milley: trumpeter and leader of the Cairo Club Orchestra; record collector; supplied period recordings for the soundtrack to the Miss Fisher Murder Mysteries series.
” Peter Fogarty: music lover; arranger; singer in jazz bands.

” Ken Hirst: former bass player with jazz and blues bands; leader of his own Neo Swing Band – Swing It!
” Ross Williamson: music lover; program co-ordinator.
” John Thompson: student of jazz and of its roots; country blues aficionado; record collector.
