Mountain Standards Time
Mountain standards time with Gene Abkarian
Mountain Standards Time presents a wide variety of jazz; usually acoustic/melody-strong/ harmonically-rich music. Material with a ‘Spanish Tinge’ and vocals are commonly heard. Recent releases make up the majority of each playlist.
Gene is a native of the Niagara region of New York, a US Army vet, a retired CSU professor, a (lapsed) jazz trombonist, and he is old enough to say “I heard John Coltrane…live!”
The proud Grampa of a trombonist now studying at Julliard, Gene has been broadcasting jazz from Fort Collins since 1986. He began airing jazz on KRFC 88.9 FM in March 2003, when the station commenced broadcasting.
