Today on my show I announced that I would be giving up my show at the
end of June. I have been presenting "The Jazz Parade" on the air at
KFJC since early 1984 (and on the internet as well for the last few
years) and it has been great fun. Since we are a non-commercial,
student/volunteer run station there was never any money in it but I
did devote many hours each week for on and off-air operations.
I have met or corresponded with many other OKOM radio people over the
years (many from this list) and I am well aware how few we now are.
However, I need to be doing some other things with my life right now
and it is time to move on. I do not know what sort of show will
replace mine but it should be interesting. At this point I am not
sure if I will be back on the air at KFJC in any permanent position
but I will let you all know if I do.
I want to thank all of the bands that have sent me recordings and gig
information over the years - I have been building my library with
purchased material but their donations to the station have been
greatly appreciated. I also want to thank many record collectors and
other jazz fans who have also donated material to the show, sent
notes and e-mail, corrected my mistakes, and lead me to new bands,
books, and websites. My show was much improved by all of this support.
I also thank the many local Traditional Jazz Societies that have been
sending me their schedules and newsletters. The South Bay Traditional
Jazz Society and NOJCNC have been particularly helpful over the years
and I hope my announcements have helped more new people to join the
I will still be performing in the Bay Area with several bands - can't
give that up right now ;-) and I will still be right here on this list!
