Hi my name is Woody. I've had a great 30+ year career in radio. I've worked in both Orange County and Los Angeles, CA. I've been a jock, production director, and program director. I've taken that experience and created 96.9 The Oasis. We are an Internet Only Radio Station. We chose this platform because of the freedom it provides. We play what we want! We have no Corporate Backup. We depend solely on our listeners who see the benefit of our station and choose to support it. We are not a non profit organization, but rather a not for profit Internet Radio Station.
Over the air Smooth Jazz Stations are disappearing or they're being sent over to the stations HD2 Channel! This is being done in San Diego and San Francisco! So we decided to preserve this music online. Since you already have a PC you don't have to go out and buy a special HD receiver to hear Smooth Jazz. "96.9 The Oasis" is free form Smooth Jazz Radio! We play the perfect blend of Smooth Jazz and some Adult Contemporary Music with NO COMMERCIALS! We hope you spread the word around that there is a station that still plays this great music and also is an outlet for Indie Artists! What separates us from the other over the air stations is our variety. Oh you'll hear all the usual artists like Boney, Benoit, Kenny G, and Euge Groove. We also play artists like Phil Collins, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, and more! Plus Indie Artists like Chuck Eaton, Joe Yander, James Colah, and Frank Piombo. Plus new Indie Artists like Halie Loren, Catherine Sarah Manna, Cecil Rameriz, Remotejazz, and more!
You will want to keep the station on all day and evening long. 96.9 The Oasis is The World's Smooth Jazz Place!
Who We Are
We are a group of people who have spent years in the Broadcast Industry and have seen the decline of freedom of expression. We are bringing this freedom back on the Internet.
Our station began in 2009 and we've grown ever since. We've become an outlet for Indie Artists to get their music out to the people. We've been able to expand to many platforms for people to listen including iTunes Radio, Tune In Radio, and our very own app. We look forward to growing even more!
