Non-Stop Online Jazz Radio Station to be Launched in Hungary
Hungary’s public media is set to mark International Jazz Day on April 30 with the launch of Szakcsi Radio, a new online jazz radio station.

The non-stop radio station will launch a test broadcast on March 15.

“Embracing and presenting Hungarian jazz on a wider scale is a true public-service function,” Anita Altorjai, the head of public media service provider Duna Médiaszolgáltató, told a press conference at the Budapest Music Centre.

Dániel Papp, the head of Hungary’s Media Service Support and Asset Management Fund (MTVA), said it “didn’t take long to decide” that the radio station should be named after pianist and composer Béla Szakcsi Lakatos, “one of the finest figures in the history of Hungarian jazz”, who died in 2022.
