Live Wire

Live Wire is a jazz performance calendar feature heard five times a day, seven days a week.

We sometimes include non-jazz performances by University of North Texas students, faculty, and/or alumni along with the regular rundowns of jazz gigs that we know about. If you are a performer, or owner/manager of a nightclub/restaurant featuring jazz, let us know about your schedule. You need to submit information to us at least one week in advance of the performance by clicking HERE, or by sending an e-mail to: kntu@unt.edu.

While we don’t guarantee every event will be announced, we include as many as possible. You can catch The Live Wire every day at 7:58 a.m., 10:58 a.m., 12:58 p.m., 3:58 p.m., and 8:58 p.m.
