Deciding What Jazz Is

Spring Cleaning at KPTZ means sorting through accumulated Jazz CDs and separating keepers from the $1 bin. Hard at work here (in this photo by Mike Carroll) are (L to R) Chris Bricker (Morning on the Salish), Dick "Rooster" Keenan (Vinyl Dialogues), Peter Robinson (Out of Nowhere), and Bill Mercier (Jazz Notes).

Earlier this year the Classical music library was similarly sorted by Gail Pruitt (Unlaced Strings), Don Landstra (Early Music), and Nathaniel Walkstein (Entertainment Calendar).

In Memory of Marcia

Marcia was the host of the two radio programs Pleasures and Treasures (aka Treasures and Pleasures) and Under the Rainbow, and she was a lifelong activist for human rights and justice. She called herself "your friendly neighborhood interviewer," and urged us all to "Go gently, or as gently as you can." Marcia was a force for good, for humanity, for justice, for art, for love.
