Steve Khan - "Jazz Radio Is Magical"
Blog Name: Jazz In The Night WednesdayAuthor: San Diego's Jazz 88.3 Posted on: October 18, 2019

Jazz Guitarist Steve Khan recently wrote his article "Jazz Radio Is Magical" about the impact of Jazz Radio in his development as a person and musician and the impact it still has today on him and future generations of musicians and music lovers. He was inspired by hearing that one of this songs had been played, in it's entirety on Norm "Birdman" Swanberg's Friday night 11pm to  Saturday morning 2am PT show "Jazz After Hours". This is why we make Jazz radio and why our members, donors, and sponsors want Jazz 88.3 to thrive. Here's the article, reposted by permission...Thanks Steve!

Jazz Radio remains a magical thing.....

    Last night, in the overnight hours in San Diego, on their KSDS-FM Jazz station, DJ Norm Swanberg presented "The Journey Home"(Keith Jarrett)(15:34) from "PATCHWORK" in its entirety! The featured players are: Rob Mounsey(keys), Rubén Rodríguez(elec. bass), Bobby Allende(conga), Marc Quiñones(timbal & campana) and Dennis Chambers(drums). Yes, Norm played the WHOLE thing! I can't explain to you all how much this means to me!!! It never gets old to know that, somewhere, you have been played on the radio. Even at this stage of life, it makes you feel like a kid again.
    When I was assessing the timings of the tunes on this album, I knew that the only way that "The Journey Home" would ever get played would be if the "overnight guy" @ radio needed a serious 'bathroom break.' But last night's case was different.
