commodreCommodore Records was more than a label releasing classic jazz recordings but the focus for a movement initiating change.  As a label it was formed in 1938 by Milt Gabler and became the first label formed exclusively for lovers of dixieland jazz in the USA, preceded in the world only by Swing in France the year before. Gabler began selling records in his father's radio shop in NYC in 1926; the Commodore Music Shop soon became a hangout for musicians, and Gabler was an innovator long before he made a record: his was the first shop to have browsing bins arranged by artist, the first to reissue classic sides and one of the first labels to list the full personnel of bands on the label.

We hope that one of the strengths of the station is we play a variety of classic tracks and items associated with the period, including poetry and documentary items.  This include content from the so called "Beat Generation" a group of American post-World War II writers who came to prominence in the 1950s, as well as the cultural phenomena that they both documented and inspired. You can find examples of their work played every day plus artles on this site. 

You'll notice that you can now donate to our station.  This contribution will help pay for running costs including licences.  We are a commercial-free independant station so please help us to stay this way.
