The 2020 Fundraiser has begun and like always will finish on the last day of the year. This year I named it the “Let Independence Ring” from all the newfound inspiration I have acquired throughout the last few months with all that has transpired concerning this deadly virus and all the injustices that are are effecting us ALL. Its not just in the United States but actually in a higher degree around the whole wide world! I’m sure you are very knowledgeable Jazz fans and already noticed the logo I created for this fundraiser was largely inspired by Jackie McLean’s 1962 recording “Let Freedom Ring.” Its very obvious and that’s exactly what I’m trying to express with this design. Although this fundraiser is not as urgent as all the injustices depriving all the citizens around the world, it still qualifies as a very important issue that has to be dealt with. It about INDEPENDENCE and that goes hand to hand with FREEDOM. Jazz Con Class Radio is constantly under alert and covertly being challenged with all sorts of schemes that are designed to raise the monthly charges. This station is reaching its 10th year and it is still kicking and largely because it has the BEST supporters and that’s the LISTENERS themselves. All I do is provide a place where they could listen to the MOST inspirational music ever created by very special musicians and for the GOODNESS of Mankind. JAZZ cures EVERY problem and we MUST KEEP IT ALIVE! After all is said and done, that’s exactly why Jazz Con Class Radio really exists and we ALL know it. WE also know that interfering the broadcast with an invasion of advertisements and ads destroys Jazz by “Commercializing” it!! Please HELP by contributing whatever you can, Here’s the LINK

"Enjoy, very much, listening to your arrangements. My wife and I have two sons (14 & 11) who think Jazz is 'Dad's elevator music'. However, while we were watching 'High Society' Bing Crosby was leading the band in 'Now you has Jazz', while slowly adding each instrument. Finally, of course, the whole number was really rolling with Louis Armstrong leading the way! My youngest son, Joseph, said 'Dad, play that once more.' My wife smiled at me and I knew this wonderful, American art form was getting through to them.
Keep going, Jose. Jazz Con Class Radio is fabulous!"

"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."
