this strikes me as incredible--or do i mean unbelievable (what a shock, coming from alan kepler)

i mean really, 700,000 listeners?  why no less a resource than the venerable US Census Bureau

states: In 2010, the city had a population of 713,777 and ranked as the 18th most populous city in the United States.

in my wildest dreams i had NO IDEA smooth jazz could be so widely appealing!!!!

this is positively historic!  all radioheads take note, THEY ARE TALKING A 98% MARKET SHARE!

having personally given up on the Smooth Jazz format around  2001, i can see the error of my ways!

yikes a 98% market share.  can they EVER TOP this?!  my uess is they are just ONE guest DJ away from

TOTAL world domination (or at least total Detroit domination!).  i hope for the sake of the rest of the Detroit

radio community who will have to fight like dogs to split up the remaining 2% market share, that we do not see 

despair, and gasp! far worse!  let's hope the advertisers and agencies dont discount the variety of listeners they still could reach

by including stations catering to the remaining 2% share of market!

Have Mercy!

Award Winning Jazz Guitarist Terrence Brewer returns with his fifth studio 
recording as a leader, Setting The Standard: Volume One (April 21st - Strong

record covering a spectrum of song styles penned by a who's-who of legendary 
composers including Cole Porter, Duke Ellington, Rogers & Hart, and many more.

Setting The Standard follows Terrence Brewer's critically acclaimed 2009 
release, Groovin' Wes, a Wes Montgomery tribute project that peaked at #9 on the
