Barbara Blake comments about her Internet Radio station:
Sunday Brunch is a marvelous way to reconnect with the gracious side of life that we often miss during the hectic pace of our daily routine. Few things in life are as satisfying as sharing good times with friends old and new. Which is why it’s such a pleasure to welcome you to SmoothJazzSundayBrunch.com.
For the past 10 years I had the great pleasure of hosting the popular Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch, as we broadcast live on The Wave radio station from several delectable and elegant locations in the Los Angeles area. In the process, it became a Southern California tradition and I learned a lot about what makes a successful brunch from the wonderful people who do such a terrific job every week at the restaurants, the musicians, and from our guests.
We’ve gathered a treasure trove of information from these personal and highly enjoyable times and it’s gratifying to be able to share what we’ve learned with you and to expand the experience to the rest of the world. And because it’s online you can access it at any hour on any day of the week.
Can a Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch lead to World Peace? Sure, why not. All the elements of the universal language are there, music, food, champagne, and most importantly, an open heart and good intentions. Brunch as a tradition and ritual has taken hold all over the world.
When Park Su Ji of Seoul, Korea returned to her home town, after living in New York City for 10 years, she introduced her fellow Koreans to an exotic way to socialize over food: “Brunch.” In the spring of 2005, she opened Suji’s, a restaurant that serves toasted bagels, blueberry pancakes and eggs benedict, among other brunch staples. Park had thought her place would primarily attract Western expatriates, but now, thanks to Park’s pioneering, scores of restaurants in Seoul offer brunch – and they’re filled with South Koreans.
That’s just one example of how thoroughly brunch has become the place to catch your breath, take time out from the cares and responsibilities of daily life, and kick back to enjoy the warmth of friends and family sharing life’s greatest pleasures, wherever you are. It’s happening in Paris, Dubai, Prague, Sydney, New York, London, Brussels, Buenos Aires, Bangkok, Los Angeles, and many other places on our planet. People everywhere know a good thing when they find it and flock to it.
What is also a good thing is that if you love music, brunch and good company you’re filled with joie de vivre. This means you’re also likely to be tuned-in and care about the world at large, in all of its variations. Which is why I’ve created Smooth Jazz World – for people like you and me, people on the same wave-length who know how to enjoy life without losing sight of the fact that we’re also here to give back and make the world a better place. In the days ahead, Smooth Jazz World will provide programming that appeals to a wide range of interests.
Our first channel is the Smooth Jazz Sunday Brunch because it’s a place to restore the body, mind and spirit so that you’re refreshed and ready to take on life’s tougher challenges with renewed energy.
Take the time to treat yourself and those you care about with special attention. An exquisite Sunday Brunch is always lavish. It’s a time to indulge in every way, not the least of which is the luxurious amount of time you can take to pamper all of your senses. Gourmet cuisine, sparkling champagne, fine wines, scintillating music, beautiful surroundings and cordial company are hallmarks of a Sunday Brunch that will put you back in touch with your better nature.
