I still miss having XM72 – Beyond Jazz on my XM radio (though it lives on as MOJA Radio). One of the most popular shows on that channel was Jammin’ Jazz, a weekly party by Michelle Sammartino featuring groovy jazz, jazzy jambands, and any high-octane jazz Michelle could find. Here’s the message she sent out last week:
Remember me? Your friend in MOJA, Michelle Sammartino! You are getting this email because you were on my mailing list from the old XM days on Beyond Jazz (XM 72) and/or the mailing list for MOJARadio!
