Thanks for the kind words! My Jazz Roots Show and my New Orleans Music Shows can be heard on WWOZ every week. I grew up listening to Jazz on WHAM late night coming out of Rochester when I was growing up in NE PA.

Great site, great music and very nice post, indeed, my dear.

But "thusly?" Ouch!!!! Perhaps you HAVE been hanging out with those lawyers a little too much... ;)

I was introduced to jazz during the winter of 1977/78 by listening to WHAM on my little transistor radio long after I was supposed to be asleep. Most of my early jazz collection was based on the records spun by a DJ named Harry Wild, if I recall. I have incredibly fond memories of lying under the covers on snowy winter nights listening to Buddy Rich, Don Ellis, Art Farmer, Sonny Rollins and so many more on "fifty-thousand watts clear channel from Rochester New York." Is there any site on the web where I can find an archive of some of those old Wild sessions? It would be such a kick to listen to those again.
