Just so you know, WFCR's primary coverage area is Hartford/Springfield, and 
out total service area ranges from Worcester to the Berkshires; Southern 
Vermont and New Hampshire to Greater Hartford and all of Northern 
Connecticut.  Our signal actually can be heard within about 12 miles of 
downtown Boston, but Western New England is where the bulk of our 200,000 
listeners reside.

I highlight Boston jazz events on a selective basis, and the same for NYC 
jazz.  There's a lot of commuting between this idyllic region of Western 
Mass and the Big Apple.
