Brad Barker

Growing up in Nova Scotia, Brad attended St. Francis Xavier University and earned his degree in jazz studies as a bass major. This led to a 10-year career as a professional musician, spending six years recording and touring with The Pursuit of Happiness. Brad then moved on and studied broadcasting at Humber College, which soon led him to various jobs at Toronto radio stations. When the opportunity to work at JAZZ.FM91 came Brad’s way in 2001, he jumped at it. Being music director at one of the few 24-hour jazz radio stations in the world and having the chance to work with JAZZ.FM91’s members and volunteers makes for a unique and very rewarding experience.
