Sounds like a perfect opportunity for your Jazz Society to go downtown and
knock on the door of the PBS broadcast station and start promoting OKOM
together in Phoenix. If nobody responds to their plea for sup[port for it they
would of course dump it asuming nobody in Phoenix cared or wanted to hear it
anyway. It is all a numbers game.
That is a very large city and certainly would support a lot more OKOM
activity then 27 people if it were promoted there. You folks need to go get the
word out all over the city, don't hide your light under a sage brush. Let it
Shine Let It Shine Let it Shine.
I would venture to guess that their pledges took in just about enough money
to pay their fees to BMI & ASCAP for broadcasting it.
This is what Jazz Societies are supposed to do, P R O M O T E JAZZ
everywhere they can Every Chance they Get. Otherwise it will indeed shrivel up and
die out for lack of interest and or support.
Having been to Phoenix I know there are a great number of people there who
would join your organization and enjoy the music if you all went out and dragged
them into a couple of your events and then had them bring their friends etc,
Bob Romans just posted about how good your band was down there so it can't
be because there is no good music for them to come out and hear.
Shameless Constant Promotion.
