The radio coverage of the London Jazz Festival has been nominated for the Sony Radio Academy Award for Best Live Event coverage. So, congratulations to:
BBC Radio 3
Unique Production Co
Somethin’ Else for BBC Radio 3
and the fesival’s organizers Serious.
Full details are HERE . The winners will be announced on Monday May 10th.
Television coverage? Only unofficial, so far…. But, hey, Youtube has no fewer than five people’s bootleg uploads of the Sonny Rollins gig.
Surely one of the most comprehensive jazz festivals in the world has a place on national TV. The BBC does, after all, put considerable effort and expense into TV coverage of other festivals.
