JAZZ RHYTHM has received the 2011 Gabriel award for national release radio programming in Entertainment/Arts during 2010. Excerpts representing the series were submitted from the programs, “Benny Goodman’s Kingdom of Swing” and “Visiting Stan McDonald.”

The Gabriels are presented each year by the Catholic Academy for Communication Arts Professionals honoring industry professionals who produce films, television and radio programs that serve viewers and listeners through the positive, creative treatment of human concerns.  The single most important criterion for selecting a Gabriel-winning program is, “its ability to uplift and nourish the human spirit.”

JAZZ RHYTHM has previously received Gabriel Awards in 2004 & 2009 and Golden Reel awards in 2001, 2002 and 2003 from the National Federation of Community Broadcasters.

Special thanks to co-creator Stan McDonald for sharing his memories, and the contents of his personal music library that made "Visting Stan McDonald" possible.
