That's the funny thing Bobby.....there are more that think there is than actually know. 
   
  Sorry to hear about losing your hour Blaise. It's always been interesting to me when public stations put more focus on Arbitron.......vs the purpose of the outlet. In that case that's usually what happens with the music unfortunately. It could also be about unrealistic expectations with $$$ needed or hoped from development and marketing divisions. The argument will me more want to hear news and talk and that is in line with the mission. True but that's only part of the mission. 
   
  Here our fundraising dollars for our local music programming plays better than national news but they have us in underwriting and obviously more people tune in to listen to the news. it's an interesting balance but it's obvious for us that our music impact on our community is very strong. So our situation I guess would be considered unique in the national arena in this regard but it works well for our music programming. I guess the bigger question is when is there enough talk? It's the ultimate out for stations. Everyone can understand talk but not the music so lets just keep dumbing down.

Indeed, Jazz seems to be in a more perilous state on public radio
stations 
than on the commercial ones. That is, it's more common to see a decrease
in 
Jazz programming on public stations these days. Why is this? Because
there has 
already been the shakeout among commercial stations, and so few are
left? Or 
is there a genuine difference between the demographics of audiences? 

I should think that programmers would love to have some insight on this.
On 
the other hand, my observation could be wrong.
