A professional jazz trumpet player himself, having studied under the guidance of Canberra jazz stalwarts Miroslav Bukovsky and John Mackey, Eddie Bernasconi hosts the Jazz After Hours program on Monday nights, focusing on the latest modern jazz albums to come out of the American and European jazz scenes while simultaneously paying homage to the great artists of the past.

The program reflects on the way past traditions collide with the contemporary sounds of today with a deep focus on the contexts and perspectives that shaped each period of jazz.
