To address Mark Ruffin's post - I'm not asking this to honor the station, I'm really asking for recognition of Dick Buckley. I don't know if he qualifies for the humanitarian award, but at least a programmers award, and I would hope that even you can look past the station and jazz community politics and give Buckley his over-due honors. This board is well aware of what is happening at WBEZ, and to me it would NOT be a slap in the face to award Dick Buckley regardless of what his employer's plans are. Following your logic, we should ignore Buckley's half-century dedication to jazz because of who he currently works for? That does not sound fair to me. When else am I going to have the chance to speak up for Bux? No one else will do it. Who's face would really be getting slapped if he got honored? This is why I keep quiet - too much politics in music for me. Vote for Buckley.
