Jazz 90.1 (WGMC) started its Spring Pledge Drive on March 10th. So get out there and make your pledge for this public jazz station and help keep them around.  

By this time next week, we'll know the schedule for the Club Pass gigs at the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival. Looking out my window at the snow blowing sideways I am finding that hard to believe... but it's true.  I hope to start taking a look at them soon after.

Is there live jazz in and around ROC for the next seven days?  Of course there is...:
