I am the host of "SWC", a show that features everything from Straight jazz, 
to Fusion (except soft jazz/light jazz/puke jazz)...i have had the show for 
about a year now, and have recently been given the privaledge of being 
involved in the remaining jazz programming at the station...

i checked out your show listing for this week....very cool, also - a little 
jealous that you get to program every night....

i have not posted to the list yet...this will be my first time....i am 
hoping to learn something from the experience...and grow my network of jazz 
heads - (for some unknown reason), across the radio waves...

thats all for now...glad to make this introduction...
