ContemporaryJazz.com Radio Fundraiser

On March 27, the amount I pay annually to keep ContemporaryJazz.com Radio will come due. My station is on Live365.com who pays the ASCAP, SESAC, and BMI licensing fees. When I play an artist, they get paid. I’ve been saving credit received through VIP memberships. I’ve saved $50 through that – thanks VIP listeners! However, it isn’t enough. To keep ContemporaryJazz.com Radio going to April 2010, I need to raise another $300.

There are a couple of ways you can contribute:

PayPal. Click the button below to donate any amount you’d like through PayPal. You can use bank information or any major credit card.















Live365.com Gift Certificate. On the Live365 page, choose the last option where you choose the amount. You can contribute anything from $5 to $100. The recipient is me and my email address is john at contemporaryjazz.com.

If there is another method you’d prefer to donate, please email me at john at contemporaryjazz.com.

If you’d drop me a note letting me know that you contributed, I’d appreciate it. You might want to include a mailing address. I’ll send a CD to anyone who contributes $30 or more. I’ve got limited quantities of Rendezvous Lounge 2 (chill/jazz compilation), Explorations – Classic Picante Regrooved (Latin jazz remixed), and Jeff Lorber’s Heard That discs I will give away as a token of my gratitude.

Holiday Shows on ContemporaryJazz.com Radio!

In addition to some Christmas music sprinkled in the ContemporaryJazz.com Radio playlist, there are two new shows you’ll want to listen to.

Sean Miller’s Jazz Pulse program is back and ContemporaryJazz.com Radio has it! Starting in early 2009, you’ll be able to hear it each week but the Jazz Pulse Christmas music program will be playing at times throughout this week. On the show: Brian Culbertson, David Sanborn, Al Jarreau, Jimmy Smith, Al Di Meola, Herb Alpert with Jeff Lorber, Steps Ahead, Spyro Gyra, Michael Franks, Special EFX, and Elgin Wells.

I’m putting together a show that spotlights new contemporary jazz holiday music as well as some of my favorites. You’ll hear the new seasonal sounds from Spyro Gyra, Bob James, David Sanborn, Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, Joyce Cooling, and Dan Baraszu & Joseph Patrick Moore. I’m pulling various cuts from a number of recordings from my collection for the show as well.

Both shows will run on Christmas Eve, beginning at 8 p.m. CST and again on Christmas Day at noon CST.
