In 1979, Jazz City-TV began recording live jazz and blues concerts in clubs and the back streets bars of Philadelphia and New York City. Raw footage was edited into half-hour broadcast and cable-ready programs.
Jazz City-TV first began cable casting on Teleprompter Manhattan CATV. The shows could not air in Philadelphia because the city was not wired for CATV and the Internet was in its early development.
