Leo Green to launch new online radio platform
Broadcaster and saxophonist Leo Green, whose career has included presenting on both Jazz FM and BBC Radio 2, is set to launch his own brand-new online radio platform.
Leo says LGRADIO.ONLINE will be aimed at listeners who feel they are not being served by the music policies of popular mainstream stations, and will be available via monthly subscription.
He’ll be presenting shows every day, celebrating the music from the 1950s, 1960s, the Motown catalogue, classic soul, rock and pop, jazz and the Great American Songbook, as well as in-depth interviews with artists.
Alongside curated playlists and the assortment of daily themed and presented shows, Green will be ‘In Conversation’ with various artists as well as using the archive of interviews recorded by his late father Benny Green.
Leo and Benny’s ‘In Conversation’ series will feature in-depth conversations with artists including Sir Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Tony Bennett and others.
In addition, LGRADIO.ONLINE will be broadcasting content from Benny Green’s audio archive. ‘In The Benny Green Archives’ features Benny’s musings on the songwriters, singers and musicians from the golden age of Hollywood & Broadway, many of whom he knew and worked with.
Leo Green comments: “LGRADIO.ONLINE is all about the passion I have for music and conversation. I really believe that there is an audience for a subscription platform, which broadcasts a variety of superb music and conversation, that people of any age will want to hear and will enjoy. I don’t believe music should be categorised by the age of the listener.”
