IN A MELLOW TONE INTRODUCES LISTENERS TO THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF JAZZ, FROM ITS BEGINNINGS TO THE LATEST INNOVATIONS. THE HOSTS DRAW ON THEIR LARGE PERSONAL CD AND LP COLLECTIONS TO SUPPLEMENT CKCU'S EXTENSIVE RESOURCES.

He was a founder member of L’Atelier de Musique Experimentale (1972), Jazz Ottawa (1976), and Music Now (1997). He has written for CODA magazine since 1970, and has been a member of the Down Beat International Critics Poll since 1982.
IN A MELLOW TONE is now hosted by a rotating collective of jazz zealots including Ron Steeds, Jim Reil, Aidian Thomas, Jean-Michel Labatut, Allan Wigney and Mark Keil. They intend on taking IAMT forward with the high standards of broadcasting that Ron Sweetman established for decades.
