Ben Young / Jazz Host
Ben Young shows
You may recognize Ben as a host on-air and also the leader of WICN’s Jazz 101 and Jazz 201 courses. Through 30 years of Jazz involvement, he has been a radio and record producer, researcher, writer, archivist, engineer, and lecturer on the history of Jazz and improvised music. But whatever form it assumes, the mission is always the same: helping folks to hear clearly the important works of the masters, and to understand what they’re hearing.
After several decades in New York (and a couple in the mid-South) Ben is working to spark up new connections around Worcester among listeners to hot music.
