"Jazz Con Class is a wonderful discovery. I never have to change it because each tune is selected so carefully. It lifts my spirits and at the same time teaches me about a side of music I otherwise wouldn't have exposure to. This is honest, real music and I'm glad to have the chance to listen to it."

I'm especially grateful that he makes Jazz Con Class Radio available so many ways with hardly any interruptions: I use the smartphone app in the car, Tune-In on our smart TV when in the living room, and Apple Music streaming when on the computer, just great music."
