Aimed primarily at people listening at work, “The Quiet Storm” is a relaxing melange of Smooth Jazz (Boney James, Brian Culbertson, Najee, Grover Washington, Jr., Bob Baldwin, etc.) and Cool R&B (Brian McKnight, Ledisi, Robin Thicke, Ginuwine, Gerald Albright, etc.) with occasional dashes of soft Adult Contemporary and New Age.
Two major features of the show are “The Smooth Jazz Featured Artist of the Week” – which, as its name implies, is a three-song Smooth Jazz set by an artist being highlighted for a given week – and “The Way-Back Machine,” three classic Soul, Funk, R&B and Dance tunes picked from a vast archive dating back 50 years (Some of which have never before been aired on the radio anywhere in Vermont).
Entertaining listeners in Northern and Central Vermont on WGDR since June 1998 and on sister-station WGDH since the latter launched in March 2010, “The Quiet Storm” is now available (via AudioPort) to other Pacifica Radio Network-affiliated stations across the country and to Internet listeners worldwide via SsassyRadio (http://www.ssassyradio.com).
