Blue Dimensions

Series produced by Bluesnet Radio

Series image

A program of blues, jazz, and other kindred forms of music. 

Blue Dimensions is a weekly one-hour program of blues, jazz, and other related styles of music, focusing on present-day artists and songs, though with a certain nod to the past and the great history of the music. Host/Producer Jonny Meister will feature some topic (album, artist, event, etc.) on each show, talk with artists, and offer great music not found elsewhere every week.
