Host of: 'DCB Jazz, Mood Indigo
A book editor and jazz and blues maven, Leslie is the early morning host of 'DCB Jazz. She is a native of the Detroit area and has been steeped in music since childhood, taking classical piano lessons from age 7 throughout her school years, singing in youth and adult choirs, and attending fine arts camp every summer until high school. She entered college intending to be a music major but was seduced by English literature, a romance that eventually spawned a career in book publishing. In 2000, Leslie began hosting radio shows featuring her favorite jazz and blues artists at area radio stations. She joined WDCB in 2010 as a cohost of Blues Edition on Saturday nights and has since enjoyed hosting both jazz and blues programs on WDCB. She is also a radio host on the Jazz Network, a syndicated service distributed by WFMT.
