WTJU JAZZ PROGRAMMING TAKES A WEEK OFF FOR THE ‘WINTER’ CLASSICAL MUSIC MARATHON FUNDRAISER

From Monday, Dec. 6 through Sunday, Dec 12, Jazz broadcasts here at 91.1/WTJU-FM will be preempted to make way for this year’s Classical Musical Marathon….giving our friends and compatriots in the Classical Music Department a chance to outdo the record-setting (no pun intended) fundraising success we achieved in October’s 2010 Jazzfest.
So, since we took our turn, we step back and let them do their thing for the overall good of the station. The music will be of a very high quality, so if you can expand your horizons enough and catch a few of the shows, i’ll wager you’ll be very stimulated to show a sign of support with a small contribution.
We’ll be back on the morn of Monday, the 13th, proud, loud and strong, as we walk, full force into the Xmas season’s celebration.
We’ll keep the lines open here just in case there’s something you want to share, and maybe, just maybe, there might a live performance review or two showin’ up in the meantime. Be well and be safe. Tune in and groove to the inescapable power of community radio!
