Folks, I play things with bass and drum solos....big band, fusion, NEW material, something with scat singing, tunes longer than seven minutes...etc. Yepper, everything that some piece of BS research said you shouldn't play and jazz was top gun again here on WHRV FM with our fall fundraiser...at $70,000...ATC $63,000...Morning Edition...$48,000...Out Of the Box (Alternative music show) $61,000. Thankfully I listened to that bit of research. Horrible radio. It's how you do it.

This is just an aside on the discussion, but artists who do include a
standard or two on an album, often have drum and bass solos on that tune.
I'm guessing it's because everyone is more comfortable on what they know,
but throw radio a bone, one standard, no drum solo.
I still enjoy Herbie's New Standard album, but I was there to see that
amazing band play those tunes live and that helped me carry it to my
listeners with the enthusiasm it deserved. I don't get to see most of the
bands that send CDs.
