JazzWeek for their informed opinion..>>

A worthy objective, but regarding the Top-50, you have to ask yourself:  why 
would USA Today devote regular space to sales numbers for such a small  
market? What does Jazz garner: 5% of album sales, if you count the uncountable  
indies? Even a Jazz advocate has to answer to the boss, who worries about the  use 
of the real estate.

Regular communication with NPR, which likes to use media as their sources,  
and national publications like USA Today, is another matter, and is something  
that should be pursued, maybe in Ed's spare time...
