Howard Caplan / Jazz Host
Howard Caplan shows
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 back in 1999 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. Since that moment, he’s been addicted to jazz and swing.
A lawyer by trade, Howard practiced law in Boston and 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 from Boston to Worcester and produced and hosted the syndicated cable TV talk show Night at the Round Table for 20 years. He’s delighted to help you get your weekend off to a great start by presenting the sounds of Ella, Ellington, Sinatra, and Basie, as well as Michael Buble, Diana Krall and Buddy Rich, on The Saturday Swing Session.
