Happy 2022 New Year AND 10th Anniversary

Facebook

I would like to wish ALL you loyal Jazz Con Class Radio listeners a very happy and safe “2022” New Year. Thanks for being so demanding and persistent, it has helped me  work harder to provide you, the listeners, with the best possible broadcast. It takes time but I feel I have improved quite a bit since I started. Well, I should have because it’s been 10 years today when Jazz Con Class Radio started. It was very challenging and expensive to have an internet before 2011  radio station. Not to mention, in a technological sense, it was just becoming feasible to have many listeners listening at one given moment. The “bandwidth” set the price and was the main concern for a broadcaster who was also known as a webcaster. That was the main concern for my first full year until technology caught up with “speed’ and the ability to have more listeners tuning in at the same time became affordable. The other obstacle was finding the most reasonable manner, monetarily, to broadcast legally.

THE 10TH ANNIVERSARY T-SHIRTS ARE COMING SOON !

Jazz Con Class Radio was on its way and now after 10 years, it is still broadcasting in the same exact manner I always wanted it to be, commercial free. Very easy to say, but unfortunately no means to make any sort of profit. So that’s when I began the fundraisers, a reason to stay afloat. It was beneficial for the listeners and certainly justifiable to be allowed to broadcast the most rich musical art form ever known and performed by the best musicians that ever walked this planet. This is the only format to go with broadcasting Jazz music, there’s no other way. This way is a very beneficial form for the listeners to have the ability to hear the music of these amazing individuals. Stay on top here and prepare yourself for real exciting news concerning the 10 anniversary. Thank you all for listening to Jazz Con Class Radio throughout all the years and most importantly, for keeping Jazz ALIVE!

"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."
