Already in the beginnings of Jazz, radio broadcasting was an important factor in the spreading of this music genre. The radio stations presented Jazz musicians with new technologies, which lead to the production of groundbreaking pieces, innovative sound and new composition techniques. Today, public radio broadcasting stations supply information on the history and development of jazz, descriptions of its current situation and can contribute stimuli for the further evolution of improvisational music.

In this disputed field, Radio Jazz Research has set itself two goals: Through open discussions and exchange of information, members and guests discuss topics, which contribute to the further research of Jazz and its presentation in media. Which, in reverse, leads to the further improvement and development of journalists and music researchers.
