    Victor’s opening question about sustaining jazz could now probably be answered with a “yes” albeit in small letters as compared to the station’s news & talk supporters’ response “YES” The news & talk programmming has slowly been taking over much of the air time once offering jazz, to my personal dismay. From a popularity & preference stand-point, I am in the minority. However, just as I begin pondering whether KNKX will drop jazz & blues altogether, they hire one of our region’s top jazz programmers & air personality Carol Handley to guide the station. Among some new jazz programs, the chance for a school student to DJ on 88.5 Thur’s evenings plus Jim Wilke & Ken Wiley’s continued excellence in programming suggest music is here to stay, in spite of the overwhelming support for news/talk. I was going to make these comments below on Jason’s post noting KNKX’ first year of operation as a community broadcaster. However, it seemed more appropriate to compliment Victor’s article.
