Your Montana Public Radio
Terry Conrad is the host and producer of Jazz Sessions, a program he began in 1973. He was the co-founder of Montana Public Radio (along with Phil Hess) in 1973/74. He served as the station's Program Director from 1973-1995, and as Station Manager/Program Director from 1995-2001. He retired from his full-time gig in 2001, but has continued on as the host of Jazz Sessions. Terry received the Montana Governor's Award for Media Arts in 2008.
Jazz Sessions tends to proceed like a real jam session, from improvisation on a tune to the full-out jazz jam complete with drum solo. On the last Thursday of each month, jazz aficionado Jon Jackson joins host Terry Conrad on the program to select tunes and talk about the legendary jazz performers.
