Chris Springer of Latin Grooves Radio Show

Ever heard of “Latin Grooves”?  If you haven’t you are missing out.

Latin Grooves, a local radio show that airs 1 to 3pm Saturdays on Jazz 88.3, delivers what many people in San Diego wish we had more of on the radio:  salsa music and all types of Latin jazz.  Broadcasting since 1951, the station is the only 24 hour all jazz radio station to devote a segment of its programming to Latin jazz for the benefit of San Diego listeners.

The main DJ for Latin Grooves, Chris Springer (pictured here in this post), was recently highlighted in an article that appeared today in the Del Mar Times .  As described in the article, Springer has a knack for not just playing Latin jazz but also educating the public on the origins and synthesis of the music over the years.

Although a local station, Jazz 88.3 has worldwide reach through the internet with a fan base ranging from New York to throughout Latin America.  To find out more information check out the Jazz 88.3 website or set your dial to the radio program Saturday afternoons.

Thanks to Chris Springer and Jazz 88.3 for keeping Latin Jazz alive here in San Diego!
