JAZZ.FM91 is grateful and inspired to receive a generous gift from Ian Stewart in honour of his parents, Mary Stewart and Alistair Stewart.

Both arts educators, Alistair and Mary met at Ryerson University, where Alistair graduated with a degree in radio and Mary received her degree in costume design. Alistair’s history with JAZZ.FM91 dates back to our days as CJRT-FM at Ryerson, and both parents introduced Ian to jazz while he was growing up.

With this gift, Ian is introducing the Mary and Alistair Stewart Fund for Artistic Advancement in Jazz.
