Emperor Rosko back on air with Jazz FM

Jazz FM has signed Mike Pasternak – better known as Emperor Rosko – to present a special programme on the bank holiday at the end of this month.

The former Radio Caroline and Radio 1 jock says he will be playing tracks from the time when jazz and soul met rock ‘n’ roll.

68-year old Mike currently does shows on a number of stations around the world, recorded in his studios in California.

He told us: “It’s an exciting time, being asked to present a special show for Jazz FM. It really does give me a chance to delve into the corners of my library that hold my interest and I hope give everyone who listens much pleasure. I will be digging out my best goodies from the archive, back when jazz and soul met rock’n’ roll, including Etta James, The Four Tops, BB King, Edwin Star and The Temptations.”

Jazz FM went on the national commercial radio DAB multiplex earlier this year and last week launched new live shows as well as a revamped breakfast show with Chris Philips. Emperor Rosko will be on on Bank Holiday Moonday (29 August) 1-3pm.
