Twenty years ago on Jan. 1, 2001, CJRT-FM, after more than 50 years of broadcasting, made the change to an all-jazz format and became Canada’s only 24-hour jazz radio station: JAZZ.FM91.

Everything that JAZZ.FM91 is today is a culmination of the passion and hard work of many hundreds of people — in front of and behind the mic, on the stage and behind the curtains, educators and artists, volunteers and dedicated listeners — all of whom have been a part of this station in the time since the switch was turned on back in 1949.

We’re pleased to offer a celebratory CD, available only to JAZZ.FM91 donors, as our thank you for the last two decades of your support. It is also a tribute to just a few of the many Canadian artists who fill our airwaves every day. They are those you have heard on JAZZ.FM91 and CJRT-FM for decades and those whose careers we hope to have helped shaped over these last 20 years.

None of this happens without your support — and the music.

So please enjoy, and above all, thank you.
