Radio Listening Options

Dear fans of Contemporary Jazz Club. Since April 29, our streaming provider is blocking certain listeners from reaching our Radio Station. As such, TuneIn had us delisted from their catalogue, so you can no longer find us in their app. Since more recently, listeners from a number of countries are being geo-blocked when trying to listen to our program. Among the blocked countries are Japan, South Korea, Russia and South Africa (full list here). Reason for these issues is an ongoing lawsuit about property rights between Sony Music and our streaming provider, which is a subsidiary of Vivendi. Contemporary Jazz Club does not have any influence on these measures, and it remains unclear when and how these issues can be settled.
If you face difficulties listening to Contemporary Jazz Club, please try some alternative listening options below:

TuneIn removes thousands of Radio Stations – listen Contemporary Jazz Club through other channels


On Friday April 29, TuneIn removed thousands of Radio Stations from Belgium-based radio streaming provider Radionomy. Also Contemporary Jazz Club uses the service and infrastructure of Radionomy for broadcasting. The take-down from TuneIn was a direct result of the lawsuit between Radionomy and Sony Music. Sony had filed a suit against Radionomy in the US District Court of San Francisco for non-payment of music royalties in the US, whereas Radionomy claims that royalties are being rightfully paid through SABAM in Belgium. For the last couple of weeks, TuneIn had been sending take down notices on behalf of Sony to individual radio stations along Radionomy’s network. It seems that the pressure from Sony was enough for TuneIn to take this action.

Listeners can still access Contemporary Jazz Club on TuneIn or on any other player, by manually adding the following URL

On PCs and Mac, we recommend using iTunes or the player on our website.

On mobile devices, we recommend our dedicated Contemporary Jazz Club App, or the app from

On Sonos go to “Add music services”, add Radionomy  and search for Contemporary Jazz Club.

Thank you for listening Contemporary Jazz Club. Because Jazz needs to think forward.
