Winners of Jazz at the Mixcloud online radio awards 2016. Curated by Emmet Hand & Ian Scott (Bootsy) The Jazz Pit began as a monthly feature on Dublin’s Up & Down radio show where Bootsy featured music from his crate digging trips abroad.
It quickly became one of 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 following around the world. The show now goes out weekly on Frission at 7pm UK & Ireland time every Saturday night.
