Bookmark and Share Sad to hear another jazz station is shutting down. It’s really a testament to the lack of interest in the country to real music.I remember when I was younger(and showing my age)when jazz was mixed into the playlists on many AM stations. But Philly has one that is still going strong, WRTI, from Temple U. They just changed a few years ago to classical during the day and jazz at night. I donate to them every year and hope the few remaining jazz stations in the US are supported enough to continue on so future generations can hear the great sounds.

Bookmark and Share Music is being assaulted on all sides...try to make an album or sell it,let alone get it played on air...sirius xm and the cloud are not the answer...Pandora? A new model needs to be in place or all we will have is the top 10 LMFAO/Beiber/Usher twilight zone . Boston has taken a big hit on this one..Eric has offered a wonderful evening show for nearly a generation. Ron Della Chiesa is gone. I still miss Robert J Lurtsema and his 7am chirping birds quiet, slow motion opening segment.

Bookmark and Share Just another example, methinks, of modern culture forfeiting (or being robbed of) the wonders and insights of the right brain on behalf of the self-important, totalitarian left. Looks like news shows will replace jazz programming during the weeknight slots.

Bookmark and Share This is a terrible thing.. .But it doesn’t surprise me.. Thats why it’s so important to educate young people about jazz, Talk to them about it, tell them who to listen to, and if given the chance play them some of you favorite artists. And most importantly take them to a jazz show/concert.
