Brent Gardner Smith
Brent Gardner Smith is a host of Jazz from Aspen.
Brent Gardner-Smith's first jazz show aired on the radio in about 1980, while he was a volunteer college DJ at KCHO, Chico. Brent's also worked as a jazz or rock DJ at KSPN and KSNO in Aspen and at WMVY on Martha's Vineyard. In the 1990s he held down the Wednesday night jazz show on KAJX for many years and is delighted to now be sharing rotating Wednesday nights on Aspen Public Radio with Jeanne Walla and Andrea Young. Brent's tastes in jazz are fairly eclectic and he is always searching for the essence of "California cool" jazz on the shelves of the radio station's music library.
