can find me at Twitter.com/SusanJazz,
where I'll be noting some of the music from my radio show and other random thoughts.
RADIO SHOW and Interviews
Large numbers of hours are
spent with my radio show, and I am going to post the interviews that I do for
you to be able to download in case you missed them during the original on-air
broadcast. I have removed the full-length compositions (they are faded in/out
for a flavor of the artist's sound) and encourage you to purchase their cds, especially
directly from the artists' suggested spot, as even purchased music doesn't necessarily
benefit the artist. (read Jessica
Williams on that topic.) (Interviews POSTED
Don't forget to tune in each Monday night from 8- midnight
(Eastern) to the show, Straight No Chaser, on WSHA 88.9 fm. If you are curious
about a song you've heard, drop me an email for the playlist info.
if you'd like to get monthly newsletters about what's happening in my crazy world,
please sign up for the letter (always bcc and never shared!) on the Contacts
