Jazz Time with Steve Williams

A tribute to Steve Williams – longtime anchor of Utah’s jazz scene


After a 42-year career in broadcasting, local jazz music host Steve Williams has retired. Again.

Williams was a beloved jazz DJ in Utah long before he landed at KCPW back in October of 2015. He first worked as a jazzman at KRCL in 1979 and then spent several decades at KUER before landing at KCPW when listeners asked, en masse, to find a place for Steve who was entering semi-retirement five-and-a-half years ago.

Steve and his wife Vicki have now relocated to Chicago to be closer to family and today on “In the Hive” we’re paying tribute to our broadcast colleague and to the career he was born to do.
