At home and away...

Just a reminder that it's pledge time here at Jazz FM - I hear many stores with Jazz FM on as their atmosphere music - I often think of asking - how many of you are members? For only $6 a month you could be - but why not $10 or $20 - that's more than some of you spend on coffee per month - or even per week - it ensures jazz stays on the air - in your homes, businesses and cars, on your laptops, iphones and provides opportunities as always to hear treasured classics as well as giving voice to up and comers - a project near and dear to my heart....soooo....

www.jazz.fm or 1 800 811 2400 - you also get the opportunity to get in on fabulous prize draws for gift certificates - for example yesterday on my shift it was a $1,000 gift certificate to Kromer radio - that's right ONE THOUSAND DOLLARS!! There will be a trip later in the campaign - depending on your donation amount you can receive a CD or an invitation to a Live to Air concert - up close and personal with your favourite performers, you can go on a Jazz Safari for $500 per couple - and have unlimited merriment with Jaymz Bee...or you can just forego all the bonuses and feel warm and fuzzy....

I posted a gig with Lauren Falls - a former "Jazzology" guest and Humber grad in NYC - coincidentally on my birthday - so if you are lucky enough to be in New York.....

Ali Berkok's recital is at U of T tonight for his Masters of music - featuring the music of James P. Johnson, Vijay Iyer and Joni Mitchell and himself among others  - that's in Walter Hall, Edward Johnson building at 80 Queens Park Crescent - from 7:30 - 10:30...Ali is also a former guest on "Jazzology"..or should I say graduate of "Jazzology"....
