This week felt like just another Friday after a few weeks of pretty constant activity. It felt nice to slow down and just make some radio without a major agenda for a change, and then I put together what I felt to be a pretty solid hour.
The Line-Up for 17 October 2014
Once again, The Line-Up works as a bookend to our KRTU membership drive. This year was particularly exciting, with the drive surpassing our fundraising goal for the fall. The KRTU listeners out there believe in what we do-- broadcasting quality jazz music of all kinds over the air. If you believe in that too, and The Line-Up is part of that, pledge your support at http://join.KRTU.org/ and become a member today. In the meantime, here's a big reason why you should become a member-- a new episode of The Line-Up.
The Line-Up for 10 October 2014
This week's Line-Up caps off the first day of KRTU's semi-annual membership drive, so you definitely should go to http://join.krtu.org and make sure this jazz station keeps on ticking. It's a really great place.
The Line-Up for 3 October 2014
I was rather distraught at the timing of this week's show. Last week at 9:50pm as my show was winding down, Joe Sample passed away at his home in Houston, Texas. I knew my next show would be all Joe Sample as tribute, but then I remembered Jazz'SAlive was the following weekend, and then Steve Coleman was named a MacArthur fellow, and The Bad Plus are still coming to town. The business of being a journalist has gotten in the way of the weekly schedule. I'll definitely do a Joe Sample tribute show as soon as I'm able, but for this week's show, there's still some business of current events and the usual newness I have to settle.
