Having grown up at the Pelham Parkway Housing Project in "The" 
Bronx....Bron-nix was the pronounciation used when someone was ignorant 
or verbally lax....its "The" Bronx....say it loud, say it proud !!!!!!

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

''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 
beauty of Caminhos Cruzados to the wild ride of Caravan to the upbeat 
of David Murrays' ''Morning Song.''  Raised in Kansas City, Wendy 
started out
playing bass, piano, trumpet and guitar before choosing voice as her 
instrument. She currently hosts a show on jazz89 KUVO every weekday 
from 1 to 4

I'll make a quick comment and then get out of dodge and allow Bronxite 
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 
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.
