About Us

WJKR-DB Jo Khool Radio “Will not put you to sleep; we’ll make you tap your feet”.
WJKR-DB Jo Khool Radio is a Smooth JazZ Internet Radio Station with broadcast studios located in Rochester, New York. We stream the Ultimate Blend in Smooth Jazz, Jazz, and Soul 24/7/365 in HD Digital ICECAST Stereo. Jo Khool Smooth JazZ and Soul Radio broadcasts on Streamlicensing.com with the Largest Smooth JazZ, JazZ, and Soul Music Library on the Planet! We take Smooth JazZ back to its roots in the early 1970’s when it was heavily influenced by JazZ Fusion, Soul, R&B, Funk, Rock, and Pop music. We also play Smooth JazZ and Soul tracks that are no longer on the charts but still have a huge following.
Back in the late 60’s when I first heard Wes Montgomery perform two Beatles tunes “A Day in the Life” and “Eleanor Rigby” I found that sound smooth and Jazzy. In the late 70’s, KJLH and KUTE 102 in Los Angeles and KKSF in San Francisco were the main stations on my radio dial. Soon I began purchasing and introducing friends to new tunes they’d never heard before. I finally decided to share all of my favorite music with the world by starting Jo Khool Smooth Jazz and Soul Radio incorporating smooth jazz artists playing a funky, soulful, and pop beat. BTW…The name Jo Khool is derived from my favorite Peanuts Snoopy character “Joe Cool”!
