Cool Nights jazz show

This is the home of Cool Nights, a radio show presented by Steve Hart featuring the best jazz.

Steve worked as a club DJ and radio presenter until the mid 1990s. In 2013 he launched the syndicated 80s dance music show The Pleasuredome. Having hosted the show for 2 years it was time for a change and Steve’s love of jazz prompted the launch of Cool Nights.

The show has the best mix of jazz anywhere and currently features on more than 45 internet, LPFM and FM stations around the world.

About Steve

Steve Hart – a brief history

Steve started his ‘career’ in radio as a volunteer at Southend Hospital Radio in 1978 and was the station’s youngest member. He spent 10 years there hosting specialist programmes such as Spectrum Motown, listener requests shows and reading the news.

He visited people in the wards (“Did I wake you?”) and ‘helped’ with outside broadcasts (“This generator’s noisy…that’s better”). He nearly got kicked off the station for playing Monty Python on his request show (“Everyone laughs at the dead parrot sketch!”).

Before training to be a journalist, and working in the newsrooms at both Essex FM and BBC Essex – as well as local newspapers – he hosted shows at Southend’s Radio Top Shop and fronted the breakfast show at Basildon Radio.

His pre-taped dance-music programmes were broadcast by more than one (land-based) pirate station, and he DJ’d at top nightclubs across Essex, Kent and London (Dr Zhivago’s, The Zero 6, Electric Blue, Nero’s 2000, Sam Lords, London Hilton, Woody’s…).

He hung up his headphones in about 1993, and dusted them off 20 years later to launch 80s dance music show The Pleasuredome.

Today he plays radio host with jazz show Cool Nights – recorded at his home studio. He does occasional voice over work as well as voice tracking and builds WordPress websites (like this one).
