[JPL] Syndicated Programming at Jazz Radio

It's simple...have equally good or better programming than anything offered for syndication and make sure your jazz fundraising pays for itself so you don't become a liability. In my view...usually...and the key word is usually...PD's will make changes like this because jazz doesn't get the support that is deemed necessary to justify the expense. That said, I've seen situations with no logic...as in the case of Bobby Jackson. You can also start syndicated jazz programming and undercut the already low $10 per hour offer on one program. It happens on jazz gigs all the time.
