Sorry for the short notice, but this just came in from Jovino Santos Neto. The program he tells us about will go on the air ten minutes from now as I write this at 12:50 pm PDT.
Jim Wilke, who has become a Northwest musical icon for his relentless support of our music scene for decades. His show Jazz Northwest is a sampling of the music that happens around here, and “Jazz After Hours” keeps good company to all those who love music throughout the weekend nights. Jim is having a fund drive for his show today, Sunday from 1 to 2 PM at KPLU, 88.5 FM. I encourage you to call 1-800-677-5787 during that time or go online anytime at www.kplu.org and donate what you can to keep his show going. Make sure you specify Jim Wilke’s show as a recipient of your generosity. His show is the only one on the station that fully supports the world-class music that flows from this region to the world. Now it’s the time to us to give back.
To hear JIm’s program, go here. Please consider supporting this important music broadcaster. Here’s a link to his invaluable Jazz After Hours. But the important thing right now is to help assure the future of Jazz Northwest.
