David Kid Jensen returns to Bauer for another series of jazz

David Kid Jensen is heading back to Bauer for a third series of playing the music he loves on Jazz FM.

He returns for a third series of David Jensen’s Jazz which will air on a Saturday night for eight weeks from 8th April.

Jazz FM will partner with Parkinson’s UK, for which David is an ambassador, to highlight World Parkinson’s Day and its work to find better treatments and a cure for the condition.

David’s first two series – an annual occurrence since 2021 – saw him engage with the audience in his love of the genre that came from his trumpet-playing professional jazz musician father in his homeland Canada along with his first broadcasts on CJOV FM in the mid-1960s.

The Kid says: “It’s so great to be back on Jazz FM in association with my friends from Parkinson’s UK. Regular listeners will hopefully look forward to some more of my favourite tunes, peppered with some anecdotes from my 50 years in the business, and new listeners may be intrigued to hear that this old pop DJ is a not-so-secret Jazz fanatic.”

Jazz FM’s Content Director Nick Pitts adds: “Kid remains one of the greatest broadcasters of his generation. His enthusiasm still shines through, regardless of his battles with Parkinson’s, and his selection shows both his extensive knowledge plus his continuing curiosity in the jazz world today.

“Also, it fills me with pride that we can continue our partnership to Parkinson’s UK once again. We know that the charity is so central to David so to give him and them an opportunity to once again educate and inform our listeners on this neurological condition, which 145,000 people in the UK are living with, is something that I’m pleased we can help with and make happen.”
