"JBTV" is a television show that features interviews with and music videos from up and coming bands. It is based in Chicago, Illinois and often helps local Chicago bands reach a wider audience. It was created and is currently hosted by Jerry Bryant.


Each week, a band is brought into the studio for an interview. They stay the duration of the hour-long episode, and talk about their band, other music they like, and videos they are interested in or inspired by. Several music videos, both by the featured band and other bands both from the Chicago area and nationwide, are played between interview segments. The show airs on public access channels, and therefore has no commercial interruptions.
