The “2024 Jazz Aficionado Fundraiser” is upon us!


Hello, fellow Jazz Con Class Radio listeners to this year’s “2024 Jazz Aficionado Fundraiser.” It’s April Fool’s Day and as many already know, the beginning of the yearly fundraiser. It will remain with us until the last day of the year (when it officially ends) OR will abruptly stop if the goal is met beforehand (anytime before 12/31/2024). This year will feature even more emphasis on hands-on programming. As you probably noticed by now, I am spending considerable time monitoring the broadcast and taking over in real-time with on-the-fly playlists. As I made it a goal of mine last year, I’m feverishly working on improving the experience when visiting the Jazz Con Class Radio website. It’s slowly becoming much easier to navigate here, from place to place. It’s also becoming much easier to access valuable information that I posted throughout the years concerning Jazz music. This responsibility and all other positions are the formalities when operating Jazz Con Class Radio. and are considered to be never-ending because they are constantly evolving. Yes, my fellow listeners, many crucial components carry enormous responsibilities when being the “Station Owner/ Administrator,” the “Station Programmer” and the “Webmaster” of the website. Last year’s Fundraiser, was unfortunately not a success in “financially” fulfilling the monetary goal. As for finding more “Jazz Aficionados,” it was an enormous success! The listeners are increasingly tuning in from literally all parts of the world! It is my responsibility to monitor and analyze all the numbers and graphs available to me, so I can get a better picture of the flow of listeners. With this valuable information/stats, I could make some significant changes and adjustments to further improve the listening experience. Jazz Con Class Radio has become more popular throughout the years and is a direct result of the listener’s “patient loyalty.” Please give to the “2024 Jazz Aficionado Fundraiser” so I can maintain and improve the quality of the broadcast. I not only have to satisfy the always-rising necessary costs of running an online Jazz radio station but also need to fulfill the equally demanding underlying “expenses” associated with “maintaining” the most organized radio listener platform that broadcasts high-quality Classic/Traditional Jazz music to a Jazz to a most advanced Jazz knowledgable audience 24 hours a day/7 days a week with absolutely NO Ads or Commercials. Please consider your support and “give” so I can continue for another year! Please visit the official  2024 Jazz Aficionado Fundraiser here….

"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."

escape the garbage passed off as real music today and experience
something real. Art at its finest, and I listen in just about every
day. Thank you for your good and necessary work, Jose."

"With all the junk music masquerading as jazz on the Internet, we have
a great gift from Jose in Jazz Con Class. He has given us classic jazz
in its finest recordings. Me gusta mucho, Jose, y gracias!"
