RE: Jazz is not dead (was: Re: FM Talk 96.9 - Enough!)

Actually, my favorite Jazz program was the late lamented "Fusebox" show on
WERS (M-F 2-5PM in the 1980s). I am a fusion fan, and wish SJZ had played
some, or at least had kept the Soft AC junk off the air.

I also agree with those that thought 'PLM did the NAC format a little better
than 'SJZ (not much better, but a little).

Oh well......

Excellent point.  I have learned _so_ much about jazz over the years
(with much more to learn), its amazing width and breadth, as well as a
whole bunch about how to be one with your listener (singular intended)
by listening to Eric/WGBH FM and on overnights.  One snowy night last
winter, driving through downtown Boston on the way to Legals then a
show, WGBH (jazz) on the radio, it was a rare moment when radio put it
all together.
