String Jazz Playlist

...we made our goal of $2000 for the show!

Sunset Road goes all jazzy for the Jazz fundraiser.
There are plenty of artists who find a home on the 'folk' show Sunset Road who either sometimes play jazz or are out and out jazzers. This show paid tribute to some of them & was part of the folk department's contribution to the WTJU jazz marathon. After all, it's all music innit? Reggae Vibes' Goldfinger and Leftover Biscuits' Emmet were in it for the whole station too, and were on hand to take pledges of support.  A very big THANK YOU to Adventure Music for providing us with cd gifts for our supporters!
