The Third Set
Monday - Thursday from 11pm - Midnight

Unexpected musical treasures are yours for the taking on The Third Set. Over the past 50+ years, there have been many recordings that have had the jazz critics abuzz, and for good reason. Many of those recordings have lost very little of their original luster and appeal. Cutting across jazz’s stylistic boundaries, you will hear this five-star music each and every week.

As a teenage musician, host Garry Finney was afforded the opportunity to perform everything from Dvorak and Jimi Hendrix to Neil Hefti charts. Listening to Rock ‘n Roll was Garry’s passion, with Jazz and Classical adding a bit of spice to life. As the years passed, the redundancy of what he heard in the rock vein was the catalyst for the migration of my musical tastes to the exclusive world of jazz.
