Joe Alessi / Jazz Radio Host

Joe Alessi is a jazz fan who plays and enjoys his favorite music every Friday between 6 and 8 pm.

The range of jazz varies widely but focuses mainly on the music of the 40’s and 50’s, with an emphasis on vocalists. Yet it’s not uncommon to hear today’s emerging jazz artists, or crossovers with Rhythm & Blues, Gospel, and even POP and Rock artists who try their hand at jazz. The goal of the show is to provide commercial-free jazz that is entertaining, interesting, and informative. Musical guests are always welcomed.

When he’s not hosting Jazz, Joe is an avid volunteer. Joe has been a volunteer with Lady Viking Soccer since 2000, he managed online book sales for the PC Library System for over a decade, and recently he joined New Creation Resale Shop. For nearly 10 years Joe has been a member of WVLP supporting community radio in Valparaiso and worldwide.
