Entrepreneur David Toler Sets Goal of $10,000 to Support Jazz Radio 88 Saturday Afternoon


NEWARK, NJ - Entrepreneur David Toler, CEO of New Jersey Memorials, one of New Jersey’s oldest minority owned monument firms, and avid jazz and music aficionado, will host an hour on WBGO FM Jazz Radio 88.3 FM ( on Saturday, June 18, 3:00 -4:00 p.m. 

Toler, a longtime resident of Montclair, will join regular Saturday on-air host Monifa Brown Carson who appears during the 2-6 p.m. time-slot.  Toler secured the coveted opportunity to make an appearance on the ‘world’s greatest jazz station’ during a recent fundraising drive -- the bedrock foundation of the listener supported public radio station. Toler will use the opportunity to challenge friends and listeners to call in a pledge while he’s on the air. His goal is to raise $10,000.

Toler plans to play a very entertaining and diverse repertoire of his favorite music that he describes in vivid terms as the “Toler Songbook.” It is a repertoire of music that features classic mainstream jazz as well as other classic forms of jazz influenced R&B, Gospel and Blues. Toler will also dedicate his on air appearance to the late Jazz aficionado and WBGO substitute host Stan Meyers and Pioneer Educator, Realtor and East Orange Civic Leader Jesse Jeffries. Toler is a product of a prominent musical family in Newark and was a distinguished music educator in the Newark School System.

“I’m excited and pleased to once again have the opportunity to host an hour with Monifa Carson on Jazz Radio 88. I have long admired Ms. Carson’s legacy of service and her extraordinary expertise as one of the best on-air jazz hosts in the business. What’s more important is that my appearance represents an opportunity for others to call in a pledge while I’m on the air to help keep Jazz Radio 88 and America’s classic music alive and well. I am hopeful that my presence will be a positive influence and we can meet a fundraising goal of $10,000. It should be a very enjoyable experience for a very worthy cause,” David Toler stated.
