Your Message Here-Dennis

Here's a recent comment left for us (I'll cut and paste so you don't have to page down):


I'm curious if you want comments on this blog. It appears as though you just want it to be a billboard that you post messages to. Do you want interaction? Discussion about jazz? People to post comments?

If yes, please post so others can see. I'm sure the jazz community you serve have quite a few things they could contribute.

The answer is YES. When we started this blog, it was our hope to encourage two-way communication with our listeners and jazz fans. The poster is right, though, most of the time it's just one-way, us posting things about the station and our shows and events. Why? Well, those are the things that are topmost in our minds on a daily basis. I'd love to be able to say we spend our free time here pondering weighty trends in jazz and culture, but like most working stiffs, we're mainly just trying to muddle through each day's crisis. :)

But that said, we would like to see this blog become a forum for your thoughts on jazz and on KCCK. If there are topics you'd like to see addressed or discussed, send them to me directly, dennis@kcck.org. I'll start a new thread.

One caveat: The thing we don't really want to get into on the blog is referendums on particular shows or personalities. We know not everything on KCCK will be to your particular taste, but I can guarantee you something.... Each and every show is someone's MOST favorite and someone else's LEAST favorite.

Mean-spirited comments or jibes about our staff or shows will be deleted. All else is fair game!

We'll be waiting to hear from you.

I would like to hear more CAM Jazz on the station, and ECM.

I would like to have a formal mechanism for listeners to recommend discs that are not getting air time. Here's my first one: "What Now?", Kenny Wheeler, CAM Jazz.

I would like to have a specific time slot every week for edgier material of all stripes: 60's and 70's dark fusion, noisy New York Zorn and Frisell type stuff, Threadgill and late Coltrane avant garde, wiggy ECM a la Garbarek, ethnic stuff like Anour Brahem and Rabih Abou-Kahlil, etc.
