Hmmmmm...

"There is another disturbing side and that is the arrogance of some
classical folk that think jazz is something you scrap off a fly swatter."

Now why does this sound familiar to me?

P.S. Thanks Jae, I was waiting a long time for that set up...

Yepper Linda....it was a nightmare indeed. I can't imagine what any
programmer would feel if they walked into their station music library one
day and see ALL of their albums gone. Out in the "dumb-sters".(intentional
play)...no less. Thousands! That's enough to send your brain in a tailspin
but fortunately most were recovered. The heartbreaking part of this is that
several were picked up by folk and carried away and you know they are only
picking out the names they recognize. I'll know over the next couple of
weeks what we lost.  
   
  There is another disturbing side and that is the arrogance of some
classical folk that think jazz is something you scrap off a fly swatter. It
was no problem for them to throw away thousands of jazz recordings. It meant
absolutely nothing to them. It's this perception that jazz is inferior -
regardless if all involved certainly aren't qualified to remotely begin to
tell you why. Fortunately management  sees it differently and recognizes
jazz music's importance to our station and culture. 
   
  And speaking of fundraisers.....WHRV successfully wrapped up our fall
drive this past Friday. Jazz once again did very well....bringing in well
over $60,000 ..... breaking the jazz record from last year by over
$15,000!!! I have to say though there was one listener that put up an
interesting challenge last Monday....he offered $2 to every $1 that came in
for an hour....with no limit. Everyone was stunned. Once it checked out I
went at it hard for that hour and raised just about $7,000 in that one hour
so he was up for about $14,000. We ended up with a $22,000 evening of jazz
pledging. Every station needs a few listeners like that for sure.

Hi Jae and all list members,

Omigod, I cannot imagine such insensitivity! During a fund drive?? 
Applecarts must not be upset during a fund drive!!! And, to just put all the
LPs in a dumpster????

I'm sorry to see anyone lose a job in these tough economic times, but that
individual deserved such a fate when she/he went ahead and did that to the
albums after you had specifically requested that the jazz albums be left
alone. Jae, you have my sympathy.

As we went through our fund drive, I took listeners on tours of our library.
They appreciated it's organization and it's breadth and depth. We music
hosts have a relationship with all of the records in our library be they on
black vynil or silver plastic. Those relationships create the relationships
with listeners, too. Jae, and others on this list, I'm sure you feel as I
do.

I's with the brothers Jackson with regard to my personal LPs as well. 
I've retained all my musical treasures even if they have been re- issued.
I've got some odd rock, funk, comedy, classical and folk music LPs too. It's
my musical life. 

Perhaps at some time, I will live Abbey Lincoln's lyrics to "Throw It Away",
but the time is not now. 

I was glad to see that most of Jae's station LPs were rescued from the
dumpster.

Keep swinging,

Linda
