> made an impact on the K.C. jazz scene. With a stellar band featuring Ali 
> Ryerson, Greg Gisbert, Ken Walker, Mark Simon, Eric Gunnison and Paul 
> Romaine, Gatschet delivers an array of beautiful tunes, half of which are 
> his own.  Quoting from Dr. Herb Wong's liner notes: ''Jazz 
> guitarist-composer Charles Gatschet's aesthetic backdrop and the music on 
> STEP LIGHTLY, indeed, ignite reasons to step lively with felicity of 
> Charles' mission in jazz.''

> pull up every song with that word in the title.  With so many titles in a
> jazz library it remembers things I might overlook.  I can also access

> tune.  This has been really helpful for my 9 O'clock Special, where I

> It is easy to change and I'm always adjusting the show up until the last
> minute and on rare occasions will take a request and fit that in as well.
> There is a J for juggle and I can switch a tune to the next hour for a 
> tune
> in that hour.
> Our webmaster has The Selector program set up to go directly to our 
> website
> so that when I change something on the program it will show up on the web
> and people can access our play list to find out what they heard.
> The hardest part was the entering of everything and figuring out how I

> but
> I have a very good assistant to do that.
