Each week a local jazz band would be featured in the show, compered by Jan Brookes with each band introduced by George Bartram, jazz critic of the Evening Dispatch. Talking to the Melody Maker he explained "I would like to hear from bands all over the Midlands interested in appearing in the programme. The aim is to present all styles of jazz from as many Midlands towns as possible."
