Best Jazz Radio Station

WCLK-FM 91.9

Staff Pick

From the moment the station first signed on in 1974 with Herbie Hancock’s “Maiden Voyage” — beaming out 57 watts of power, about enough to hear it a block away — WCLK-FM (91.9) has been Atlanta’s best jazz station. Of course, there were times when WCLK was Atlanta’s only jazz station. But with competition or not, WCLK clearly stands apart with its smart and eclectic mix of all things jazz, plus programs that celebrate blues and gospel music. Today, the station may still broadcast at a modest 6,000 watts from the campus of Clark Atlanta University, but without WCLK, the jazz scene in Atlanta would be Kenny G. at Chastain Park.
