I never did, and continue to dislike the notion of *Not for all listeners*
What does that mean?
How do I/You/They know until they listen?
To me this is another in the general 'dumbing down' process. Granted you're playing it, as some others won't because they already "know they won't like it."
What I play on my program (and couldn't imagine doing anything else) is what I LIKE TO PLAY, which happens to be a fairly wide range, and who it's for, or who's going to get it is none of my business.
If there wasn't an element of the sounds of surprize, would we be able to actually say we were doing jazz radio programs?

Ornette's new recording is getting play on WQLN in Erie and elsewhere, I presume. His first live recording in quite some time, and an exciting one at that. Two bassists! 
Ornette sounds great. Not for all listeners, of course, but I've gotten positive feedback. 
What are other programmers hearing?
