Jazz Welcome Dear Listeners, Not only has the weather turned cool, but so have the airwaves, as the WTJU Fall Jazz and Blues Marathon once again swings into action. The countdown begins Wednesday morning October 28th and grooves through Sunday November 1st. This means that for 5 days your favorite jazz and blues hosts will bring you 19 hours a day of uninterrupted special jazz programming, designed to heighten your listening pleasure and your inspiration to generously loosen your wallets! A radio station is not a cheap thing to run. As public community radio, WTJU collects no advertising revenues, so YOUR financial support ensures that we stay on the air! WTJU's volunteer DJ's are conspiring right now to make sure that by the end of day one you are addicted to this sonic nirvana. Be it jazz piano masters like McCoy Tyner and Thelonius Monk, scorching soul jazz, swinging clarinet, soaring vocalists like Nina Simone, modern funk monsters like Medeski Martin and Wood, or blues originals like Dr. John, there is a feast for all tastes on 91.1 FM during the 2009 Jazz and Blues Marathon. However, while enjoying the music, please remember to stir out of your reverie long enough to pick up the phone and call in a pledge (or 2 or 3!) or donate online. WTJU is one of Virginia's real treasures. And we need some of your treasure to keep circulating the golden tones. Thanks for listening and for your support!
