Jazz Spotlight On Sinatra

Every Saturday 3pm - 5pm and Monday 9am - 11am - HD2 - Eastern Time

Nancy Barell started out by having a jazz program in college. After that she worked for the federal government for many years.  After leaving government, she had a program on WPBX (NPR station) in Southampton, NY for several years. Then she moved on to managing jazz musicians including Dena DeRose and David Hazeltine among others. She spent 11 years on Live365.com until they went dark in December 2015 and was fortunate to find a new home on WFDU for her “Jazz spotlight On Sinatra” theme program. She has always been a Frank Sinatra fanatic with Jazz coming in second. Her show concept is derived from that avid long time interest.

In addition to playing a lot of Frank Sinatra originals, she often feature these same songs performed by jazz singers and instrumentalists. She also highlights jazz masters who have recorded the great standards. Her goals are to bring to her listeners the best songs and musicians and to introduce them to new artists and jazz icons of today and yesterday.

She welcomes your comments and suggestions. Please send them to
