Just a quick note to say thanks to all of the promoters, labels and artists
who have sent us packages for our upcoming Jazzfest. Several of you have
been particularly generous and that is very much appreciated. For those of
you still working on it, it is not too late. We really need your support.
For those who want to know, here is a copy of the letter I sent out for our
It's that time again for my yearly request for some support for our annual
Jazz fest weekend.
Just to remind you, every year for the last 24 years WWSP does a Jazz fest
weekend in Oct. We play 60 hours of jazz programming in addition to our
regular weekly programming. We also bring in a live band and it is a big
weekend. This years live concert is Connie Evingson and the Clearwater Hot
Every year we do some giveaways throughout the weekend and a few at the
concert. We are also doing Katrina benefit fundraising at our concert this
year. All proceeds will be going to a chapter of Habitat for Humanity in
Louisiana. We will be auctioning off items donated to 90fm by local
businesses and listeners. Soooo here's the pitch - Would you be willing to
make a donation to the cause? I don't care if it's material that's not
current, as long as it's Jazz. I'm looking for 5 to 10 discs. If you wan't
to do current releases now is a good time. We also would be happy if you
want to send Tee-shirts, hats or other similar kinds of items for the cause.
I ask this while acknowledging your previous generosity and support of WWSP.
I would need the discs by Oct. 12th. to prepare for Jazzfest.
Thanks in advance for your help.
