Jazz FM to be carried on British Airways in-flight audio for the first time

From November 1 2012 listeners to Jazz FM's top rated weekly show, Jazz Shapers, in association with law firm Mishcon de Reya are set to soar to new heights, after the programme starts broadcasting on British Airways flights, for the initial term of one year.

Jazz Shapers is a one-hour  programme broadcast every Wednesday evening on Jazz FM and has been sponsored by Mishcon de Reya for the last year.  The show shares music from the risk takers, leaders and influencers of jazz, soul, funk and blues, alongside interviews with their equivalent in the business world - entrepreneurs who have defined and shaped business categories and ways of operating.
