Hosts: Ian Scott/Emmet Hand (IE) / Next Show: July 26, 2014, 6 p.m.
Whether it’s Soul, Afro, Latin, Hip–Hop, Techno, House or Electronica – The Jazz Pit will always find a connection to Jazz.
The Jazz Pit began as a monthly feature on Dublin’s Up & Down radio show back in 2005 in which Bootsy featured music from his latest worldwide crate digging trips. It quickly became the most popular element of the Up & Down radio show and in 2012 the crew decided to take it online as a regular podcast. Since then it has gained a huge worldwide following.
Bootsy (Ian Scott) is first and foremost a record collector but also a DJ, remixer and broadcaster. He began his radio career back in the early 90’s on Dublin’s DLR FM. Emmet Hand is first and foremost a broadcaster but also a record collector, DJ and remixer. Emmet started the Up & Down radio show back in the early 90’s and has presented it on various radio stations across Ireland since then. He has also produced and presented radio shows for stations in the UK, US, Japan and online.
