WABE’s H. Johnson has been a fixture on our station since 1978. As host of both “Blues Classics” and “Jazz Classics,” H. continually educates and entertains WABE listeners every Friday and Saturday night.

H. joins “City Lights” every other Friday to share a bit from his breadth of jazz knowledge. The segment “H.

Catch H’s Blues Classics show tonight and every Friday beginning at 10 p.m., and then return for Jazz Classics every Saturday night beginning at 8 p.m., right here on 90.1 WABE.
