The 2019 Keep Independence Alive Fundraiser

Welcome to the 2019 Jazz Con Class Radio fundraiser, “Keep Independence Alive.” The sole purpose of this year’s fundraiser is exactly the same as the previous ones I created before, to continue broadcasting Jazz Con Class Radio without any advertising at all! This year’s campaign will run from the beginning of April and end on the last day of the year. It can as well end anytime and immediately if the the goal is met beforehand. Yes, once the goal is reached, the fundraiser will be done! Hopefully the amount I’m shooting for this year will not change for upcoming years. The broadcasting fees (Copyrights fees) have increased this year but in a positive manner because its due to added interest of the Jazz Con Class Radio broadcast. Yes, the word is spreading and the listenership has increased about 20% from last years totals. I have received many emails from worldwide listeners expressing their appreciation towards the type of Jazz that plays on the station, especially the variety of rare Jazz tunes that they apparently never heard of, I guess because of the limited time they were allowed on commercial based stations. Most interestingly they all specifically point out and praise the freedom of commercialism, they love that aspect of Jazz Con Class Radio. This seems to be very important as you all……Learn More

"I appreciate Jazz Con Class Radio because I love bop, hard bop, and related jazz forms. I especially appreciate Jazz Con Class because of the great range of musicians and cuts that are played. Although I like to hear Miles Davis play So What and John Coltrane play My Favorite Things, familiar cuts like these are heard too often on other jazz stations. Unlike other jazz stations, Jazz Con Class Radio frequently surprises me with great music that is not so familiar to me. I love it. And I also love the absence of commercial interruptions.

Although I am not a musician or an authority on music, I teach a Bop seminar for first-year students at the University of California at Davis. In addition to hearing the music, the students learn about the musicians and urban culture in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I often play Jazz Con Class Radio at the start and end of class meetings. The music is a wonderful gift. The station is also a wonderful gift."

"Wonderful station! Thank you so much Jose! Great selection of wonderful jazz, all the way from New Orleans to hard bop and the funky stuff. Musician and jazz fan for more than 30 years, and I am discovering new tunes and artists all the time here at Jazz Con Class. Saved straight to my favorites!"

"As a college English and Fine Arts professor, I have spent many long days and nights grading and writing papers with your station as my soundtrack. I can't thank you enough for the perfect score for such work, which I've been leaning on for the last four years. I've always been obsessed with jazz, but like many fans, I'm selective and looking to avoid the obvious. Jazz Con Class hits all the right notes, and while I love to hear my favorites (Bird, Trane, Monk, Morgan, Hubbard, Blakey), the variety of deep cuts is what brings me back. Thank you for the thoughtful intent and love for this music that shines through in every playlist."
