[JPL] Jazz on Philly radio......and other places

Peeps,

As much as I respect the panel members chosen to talk about the state of 
jazz radio I can't help but be miffed that they didn't speak with an upper 
level management person at a station that actually programs this music as a 
full time station or a split format station.  I would have loved to have 
heard from BEZ's Ron Jones juxtaposed with DUQ's Scott Hanley or BGO's 
Cephas Bowles.  It would have also been interesting to hear from a jazz 
programmer who is in the trenches and trying to deal with the problem of 
increasing cume, AQH and TSL.  Who has greater insights to the problems we 
face that us?  I wished the panel had been stronger.

Bobby Jackson
