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...
