Mel Hill is well-known as a trumpeter, broadcaster and jazz music writer – an all-round expert whose career spanned education, network radio and his long-running local radio jazz show.
Mel retired from his jazz show on September 5th, 2007 after 19 years continuous service to jazz radio. What began as a regional specialist music show more recently developed into a cult worldwide hit much appreciated by a whole new audience thanks to the world wide web. Indeed, you made Mel Hill’s Jazz the most popular Listen Again show produced by BBC Local Radio with around 20,000 hits each month. A wonderful selection of music, plus Mel’s vast knowledge and relaxed presentation style proved a winning combination.
