Welcome to Cool Nights

This website is the home of Cool Nights, a weekly jazz radio show hosted by Steve Hart.

Steve worked as a club and radio DJ from the late 1970s to the mid 1990s before hanging up his headphones to go in a new direction within the media.

But the music never really left him and he continued enjoying music whenever he could, and still keeps his SL1200 turntable nice and clean.

In 2013 he launched the syndicated 80s dance music show The Pleasuredome. Full of rare 12 inch 45s, megamixes, remixes and tales of Steve’s time as a club DJ, the show was an instant hit with broadcasters the world over.

Having hosted the show for 2 years it was time for a change and Steve’s love of jazz prompted the launch of his current show; Cool Nights.

The weekly show has the best mix of jazz anywhere and currently features on more than 40 internet, LPFM and FM stations in countries such as the UK, the US, Italy, Switzerland, Australia and New Zealand.

Born in the UK, Steve moved to a remote part of New Zealand at the turn of the century. He does voice overs, writes and is a WordPress aficionado.


The Cool Nights syndicated radio show is made for not-for-profit internet, LPFM and community radio stations.

The show features an eclectic mix of jazz from across the decades, new releases and a bit of opinionated chit-chat.

Each Cool Nights radio show is 60 minutes long (59:45) and offered as a 128k MP3 file (peak -3db) via a DropBox download link sent to approved broadcasters. A track list is sent with each show.
