Taint Radio is in its tenth year (with one hiatus to retool and re-energize), with one Internet Radio Station of the Year Award, and a constant goal to present original programming 24/7, without ads, commercial sponsorship and the usual flotsam and jetsam of terrestrial radio. Our only financial support is you, the listener, via the Tip Jar on our website.

One Man’s Jazz has been part of Taint Radio since January 2012 and revels in the freedom to program whatever it wants.  A new show is heard each week at taintradio.org on Thursday at  9 pm ET, repeated Mondays at 4 am ET.  Check the Taint Radio schedule for other time slots for archived shows.
