I don't know any other way to pronounce The Bronx other than The
BRAHncks.  I also call it Fort Apache or the Boogie Down.


Aloha,

Bronx Bomber Bob

This week's JPL sponsor: Outside Shore Music    Wendy Fopeano ''Raining
On The Roses''

''Wendy Fopeano sings with depth, creativity, and soul.'' Fred Hersch

Considered an exceptional singer by her peers, Wendy has surrounded
herself with some of Denver's world-class talent for her second release
on Outside Shore. The music spans a wide range of moods, rhythms, and
tempos, from the exquisite beauty of Caminhos Cruzados to the wild ride
of Caravan to the upbeat funkiness of David Murrays' ''Morning Song.''
Raised in Kansas City, Wendy started out playing bass, piano, trumpet
and guitar before choosing voice as her main instrument. She currently
hosts a show on jazz89 KUVO every weekday from 1 to 4 pm.

no,
what have I done?  >>>

I'll make a quick comment and then get out of dodge and allow Bronxite
Bobby
Jax take over. Most of my relatives all lived in the Bronx from post WW2
til
the early 80s when they moved to Florida. My father being an adventurer
opted to move the family to So Cal after the Cuban Missle Crisis and Bay
of
Pigs realizing we were not returning to Cuba, anyhow every other summer
I
would spend it in the Bronx with my cousins. I have never heard any
alternative pronunciation for the Bronx, heck even in Spanish my aunts,
uncles and older cousins would call it El Bronx.
