NPR and WBGO: Newark NJ present their annual New Year's Eve musical extravaganza to take you through midnight and beyond. An NPR tradition every New Year's Eve since the 1970s, Toast of the Nation is the perfect audio complement for the occasion. It's jazz that you can party to, all night long with countdowns to midnight in all four continental time zones. Spirited, improvised, grooving and swinging, each segment is a stop in a sequence of celebrations, contributing something new to the musical feast. 7 hours of music will start at 9pm CST and continue throughout the night until 4am.  Hear the energy infused live concert recordings of Wynton Marsalis, Snarky Puppy, Wycliffe Gordon, and more.  Hosted by WBGO's Rhonda Hamilton. It's sure to be a non-stop celebration of musical fireworks that will keep you dancing and swinging all night long.
