Description: In May 2005 Guardian Media Group Radio announced that Jazz FM was to be no-more and this frequency was to be re-branded Smooth FM. Their press release stated that most people in London did not try Jazz FM because "were not into jazz music" and that the name put them off. Some of the presenters are to stay including Russell Pockett and Sarah Ward. The Smooth brand has been running in the North West for some time. Over the last months the music output changed on Jazz FM - they dropped Dinner Jazz in the evening for example. According to the press release Jazz FM hasn't made a profit in its 15 year life, so you can understand the commercial descision...but it's still sad. Bye bye Jazz FM, I am sorry to see you go - another station with "different" music bites the dust. Some more interesting stuff about the change. Smooth FM officially launched on 7 June 2005. Well Smooth FM has been going for some time now; and the good news is I still like it :) Typical music includes Lemar, Lionel Richie and Luther Vandross.
