Wow--that's one heck of a list!  WEMU is able to
please so many listeners in so many ways because of
your service and support. 

This is the last "Top 25 Jazz" list for 2004.  We
have had another fantastic year of new and reissued
music on 89.1 thanks to you.  We know its tough on
small labels and individual artists, but we truly do
appreciate the confidence you show WEMU with your
outstanding service.  Along with our ace engineering
staff and our passionate on-air hosts, we are who we
are because of the music.

For your information, the results of the WEMU staff
poll and our listener poll will be announced on 89.1
Jazz with Michael Jewett and Nik Thompson this
Friday.  The show airs from 1PM to 4PM eastern time.
 Tune in--you might be surprised by our favorites
and our discerning listener's choices might surprise
you too.  You can listen online at <wemu.org>.

We look forward to serving you and WEMU listeners in

Peace and blessings to all in the new year.
