Greetings Jazz Friends:

We are kicking off an overall eighteen-month jazz campaign with an initial one-day on air campaign this Thursday, June 28 from 7am-12am

Please assist us in any way that you can this Thursday.  We need your support.  We also need guest announcers, telephone operators and anything else you can do to help cover the 7am-12am on-air campaign and the special evening event to honor our longtime program director, BH Hudson. 

We will have a retirement celebration for BH Hudson that evening from 6pm-8pm in the atrium of our building that is free and open to the public.  Everyone must register via EventBrite at to ensure we are able to host everyone at the farewell celebration.     

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me directly via phone or email.  #JazzMatters  #WNCUMatters #Legacy

Thank you in advance as we push forward and closeout this fiscal year!

Donovan -leader/drums, Autumn - vocals, Andrew - piano,  Chris - bass.  I reckon Mr. Cheatham was paying attention to that portion of the professor's lecture that said make sure you do what it takes to get good and then make sure you surround yourself with good folks performing with you.  This should be a smokin' session!
