About us

Music from the Blue Light is a one of a kind radio station coming from the beautiful high desert country of Northeastern Nevada in CD quality 128 kbps stereo. We specialize in a great selection of vocal jazz, standards, big band music and ballads. Put simply, it's the greatest music of all time. We mostly play classics from the 40s, 50s, and 60s, but we occasionally play music that fits our format from contemporary artists as well. This is our sixteenth year broadcasting on the Internet.


How it started

Back in the late 1990's I was looking for a way to play my music collection at work. This was before iPods and iTunes were around. Internet radio was just in its infancy so I decided to set up an Internet radio station on Live365 for my own beneift so I could listen to my music collection. And since I have rather eclectic tastes I didn't expect that anyone else would listen. Well much to my surprise other people did listen and they liked it. I started hearing from people who said that they had finally found the music they had been looking for. It was the birth of Music from the Blue Light.

The station name

I have been asked often where did the name "Music from the Blue Light" come from. Well, it so happens that back in the mid 1960's there was a radio program on the AM band on KGO Radio, San Francisco called "Music from the Blue Light." It aired late on weeknights and it featured a female DJ with a soft, soothing voice. KGO had a strong signal at night and it could be heard all over the western half of the United States. And it played pretty much the same music that I play now. So I decided to copy the name. And the name has stuck to this day.
