triad dj profile
Name: Jack Long
Catch me on: WUAG 103.1 FM
Show title: “Sunday Jazz”
Show time: 10 a.m.–1 p.m.

What I play: Classic jazz
What you’ll hear: Miles Davis, Art Pepper, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Charlie Parker, Marcus Roberts, Wynton Marsalis, Bobby Short, etc
Why I play it: I love sharing music that people have either never heard or have not heard in a long time. I especially love to highlight an artist from time to time such as Bobby Short, the Mills Brothers or the Ink Spots.
A good starter album: Dave Brubeck — Time Out. “Strange Meadowlark” has the most beautiful opening I think I’ve ever heard.
Best thing about DJing: Sharing the music and the love!
Got in the game: A friend of mine worked in the news department and she suggested I try it over the summer. I guess you could say I took a shine to it.
Service time: Just about three years.
Favorite bands: Wow! Tough one. Roger Miller, the Rat Pack (although Sinatra preferred the name “The Summit”), old Fleetwood Mac, AC/DC, Van Halen, old Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bobby Short… well, I’m sort of all over the place on that one. I don’t like metal.
