Howard Caplan

Jazz Host

The Saturday Swing Session, 8-10am, Saturday
The Big Band Brunch, 10am-12pm, Saturday

Howard grew up the son of a swing-era big-band drummer, but his dad’s love of swing and jazz took some time to rub off on him. An admitted “Top 40/Adult Contemporary refugee”, Howard came to his senses a decade ago when, in a fit of trying to find quality music, he discovered WICN on his car radio while returning home from work on the Mass. Pike. Sincethat moment, he's been addicted to jazz and swing and is a huge fan of all types of music. He enjoys everything from the blues, to rock, to opera, to yes, even Top-40. A lawyer by trade, Howard practiced law in Boston and also taught at a law school. He currently serves as the Director of Communications and Training for a large government agency. Howard has hosted talk shows on five different radio stations heard fromBoston to Worcester, and has produced and hosted with his wife, Patricia Davidson, an attorney with the Worcester firm of Mirick O'Connell, the syndicated cable TV talk show “Night at the Round Table” for 16 years. He's delighted to help you get your weekend off to a greatstart by presenting the legendary sounds of Ella, Ellington, Sinatra and Basie on The Saturday Swing Session from 8 to 10 AM, and on The Big Band Brunch from 10 to Noon.

Al Dean

Al grew up listening to the music of the 40’s on his father’s EH Scott radio and 78 records. Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and Benny Goodman were family favorites. This is first experience in the broadcasting field and allows him to dig into his closet of old vinyls and share them with his audience on the Sunday afternoon edition of the Jazz Matinee.
