Wonderful local station
I’ve been listening to KJZZ on air for the past few years and they always keep my attention with quality journalism and interesting stories to keep me sane on the way to work. And the voice work!! Magnificent! Listen if you’re a fan of Arizona and good content!
Bad sound quality
If you’re going to have guests on phones tell them not to use the hands-free as the sound is awful.
Steve & Mark make a great team. Great content. I really appreciate the podcast because i can't listen to the show in the morning. Happy to be a KJZZ Member.
